"A Pair of Pears"
3" by 4"
Oil on Masonite
Up until today, I couldn't understand why artists were always painting pears.
First off, I'm not a big fan of fruit.
Sure, I'll eat apples or raspberries or blackberries if they're cooked into something.
Pears aren't on my 'acceptable fruit' list.
I mean, they smell nice and all, but I just don't care for the taste.
But I kept hearing artists going on and on about pears. How 'human' they are to paint.
Human? A fruit? Gay jokes aside, I just couldn't see it.
Until I went and bought a pair of pears and painted them.
They're like little flirty green Schmoos!
You can put me in the 'I love pears (to paint)' category.
