Dancing Pears

6 x 6 in, oil on linen on panel -- SOLD

The other day, I got these pears from the WSU fruit orchard, in Pullman, WA. I like painting fruits from there because of the wide variety of colors and shapes I can choose from. The problem is that some of them have the bottoms in odd shapes, and have to sit in a particular way. Then I don't always like the way the stems are pointing at. This makes the still life setup even more challenging. So before I settled down with this composition, these pears dances all over the little stage for a while.
