Stacked, Stem to Stern

"Stacked, Stem to Stern"
6" x 6"
Pastel on hardboard
I was given a pear ... a beautiful one whose blush originated at her stem and traveled across her plump belly, but dissipated by the time it got to her … stern. She was lovely, but not unique, so I sliced her into thirds, on the diagonal and stacked her in a way that she would be. 

It's pear season where I live — at least that's what Harry and David would have us believe.
