Asian Pear

"Asian Pear"
6" x 6"
Oil on panel
It sat in my kitchen for two weeks, this gift from a customer of my daughter's. It was wrapped in white paper and a meshy-net.  Once again, there was food in the house that mystified us.   

I brought the the mystery fruit to my studio tonight and researched it.  It's an Asian Pear—possibly Korean.  I liked the unblemished skin of one color, top to bottom.  I shone a light on it and painted the direct complement around it, smashed some design into it and then painted the pear.  I'll slice into it tomorrow!

Thank you for stopping by.
