Pear Frenzy!

What is it about pears that make them so much fun to paint???

These are all pastels, about 4" x 6".  The first 3 are on Colourfix paper and the last one is on regular old sand paper.  I'm really enjoying how the colors layer and blend.

Deb, two pairs of pears!

I agree, pears are so much fun to paint and you did a wonderful job. I think that the third and fourth are my favorite.

Hi Deb, good to see you creating art again. Love the pears. You are doing a fantastic job with them.

Deb, these are great pears. They can exhibit such variation that makes them fun to do. Only one problem with pastels--they get messy some times, but I think that's kind of the fun of it--a lot of hand and finger work.

Thanks so much everyone!

Christiane, I feel some more coming! LOL!

Randi, thanks. It feels good to be painting again.

Merle, thanks. Yes, they do get messy, but I kind of like that! And I like the immediacy. :)
