Yellow Pear and a Brick SOLD [singlepic id=1833 w=500 float=center] “Yellow Pear and a Brick ” 8″ x 10″, unframed pastel Although behind apples, pears have been a widely painted fruit historically and in modern times. There’s something about the shape that draws me to them. When I’m not sure what to paint for the day I frequently grab a pear . . and sometimes a brick. Visually it works for me. Some other pear paintings.
