"Pear Pressure"



















6 x 6 oil on canvas panel SOLD

The other day I posted "Peer Pressure" featuring
3 apples crowding a pear. Today the bullying
continues with the pears taking their turn at

pressuring the apple.

I always get the Jets and Sharks mixed up with the Galas and the Bosch's. Thanks for looking at the stems so closely....

Great composition..it adds to the crowding effect by the pears. I like the soft blue around the shadows.

Hi Gwen,

I like this one a lot, great composition, colors and values. I went snooping back in your older posts from 2009. Your work has really improved over the past year and a half. I'm sure you know that! Its exciting to see artists constantly pushing themselves to create better works! Just think what yours will look like in another 18 months!

Hi Gwen,

I like the pear pressure. So lovely. No one paints fruit the way you do.

Fruit can be so nasty sometimes can't it? Another beautiful job and a very clever title and series my friend.

Another one that's good enough to eat Gwen! You must be gaining weight painting these...I KNOW I would! :)

Splendid work, Gwen! One can just reach out and touch. Over here the light green almost yellowy average-sized apples are called Golden Delicious.
