A Pair

An unlikely pair?
I searched for the bosc pear in the supermarket with the plan of painting a single pear. Once I got home to the studio the lightbulb found it’s way to the set-up.  They seemed like the perfect pair.

This was one of those paintings where I wasn’t sure when to stop adding detail. I could gave given a few more hours to the lightbulb alone but, believe it or not, my goal is not to create a photo realistic painting. Well . . . perhaps on occasion ;-)
