Windowsill Pears

PEARS...
They are known as
the 'gift of the Gods'

 'Pears and Lace'
or
'Windowsill Pears'...
which do you like best?

I worked on this painting in class today.
I've been working on putting light into my paintings.
Also at first I had the pears all wrong,
then with guidance from my instructor,
I removed most of the color,
and began again on the pears.
I think they look good enough to eat now.

"There are only ten minutes
 in the life of a pear
 when it is perfect to eat."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Savor the day...
and savor a pear now and then...

Love your edible window dressing. You've handled the light and shadows very well. I agree, the pears look good enough to eat.
Stay inspired!

It's gorgeous. I'd be really pleased with myself if I ever created something that good.

This is beautiful!I love your angle perspective - rather than a straight on view - great job with the many colors in a ripened pear - did you have only ten minutes to capture that ;) ?

What a beautiful watercolour! I envy your talent. I vote for calling it "Pears and Lace."

Pears and Lace is very, very delicious! Colors, light, shadows; everything is wonderfully handled, great job!
Great quote, too and applies to avocados and peaches, too! :))
