PEAR

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

This is a Comice Pear. They are small with sensuous shapes and colors that sing. With all that is going on this time of year I am enjoying painting a familiar subject.

  1. Linda,
    This little pear is fabulous- looks effortless and just perfect with the dark background letting it stand center stage. Wonderful reds.

  5. Elle ne peut qu'être réussie cette poire ma chère Linda puisque vous avez choisi une Comice ! C'est avec elles que je concocte certains desserts comme celui-ci :
    Après avoir poché mes poires dans un sirop, je les coupe à 1/3, je conserve la queue mais j'évide les pépins. Je fais une ganache au chocolat que j'incorpore à la poche à douille en sandwich. Je saupoudre de pistaches hachées le tout sans oublier de faire une crème anglaise pour accompagner...
    J'aime beaucoup votre poire qui tourne bien et prend parfaitement bien la lumière.
    Bisous

  6. Really nice, Linda! I clicked on it to enlarge it and really like the brushwork, especially the subtleties where the edges meet the background. Really nice saturated color.
