"Just Pear-fect!" 5x7, oil on board

I love painting fruit. Fruit is colorful, interesting in terms of shape, and falls beautifully into the simplest compositions. It is almost restful to paint fruit and pears are especially fun because they vary enough in size and color to ensure that every pear that is painted will be different from those I've painted before!

This type of thinking may sound a little boring to non-painters, but to me at least, it's interesting.

I painted this yesterday in the hopes I could find time today to do another pear painting. Then I would have had a pair of pears. Sigh. How delightful would that have been? Well, the second pear just didn't happen and with other responsibilities looming including an important new commission I don't think it will happen.

So I hope you enjoy my little pear, and please send me an email at maryannejacobsen@aol.com if you are interested in purchasing this little painting. To visit my official website and learn more about me and my art, please go here.
