Pears, Pears, Pears,

What is it about pears that's so fun to paint?  An amazing thing happened today concerning pears.  I posted a pear (colored pencil) to the JWJarts website .. a challenge so to speak, and not an hour later what do I receive in the mail.. a card  from the UK  and tucked inside a beautiful watercolor of a pear.!!  Hmmm! Coincidence??
It was from Pat Elliott and it isn't even my birthday! or Christmas !  What did I do to deserve this...???  Pat I can't tell you how you made my day. !!!
And the colored pencil pear that I'd done and  posted almost at the same time to the forum at JWJarts.  
Woo Hoo !  Yes, Gypsy at work !!!!    BJ

  4. Like Anamaria said, make me feel like drawing a pear too!
    In Holland we have the best apples and pears harvest in 100 years. And now is the best time of the year for appels and pears. Maybe it is a nice idea to paint of draw a couples of pears first and than make a cake or dessert from it... Mmmm delicious.

  8. Oh so gorgeous! Both of them. Love that realism you have in your pear, BJ. It is as if it was plucked right from the tree and is so scrumptious!
