6 x 6 oil on canvas

Those fruit bowl bullies can be so cruel. This
incident caused quite a bit of bruising!

I like the "Pear Pressure" and I bet a lot of folks would get it. It jumped out at me, as I expected to see all green apples at first. It was sort of a pleasant surprise. Made me smile when I realized what you had done.

LOL... Love the painting [perfect shiny green on the fruit] and the title. Perhaps you can use "Pear Pressure" with a composition of three pears and one apple.

Beautiful Gwen, I laughed at the title even
before I saw the pear. So perfect. A great
painting, as always.

Once again an awesome job Gwen. Love the light, shadows and the lovely citrus shades, green yellow. The shadow without going black makes for lovely reflections.


Lovely job.

Such luster and sheen...the apples(and the pear, of couse!)look wonderful.Apt title,too!

Tammy Hext said...

Beautiful Gwen, that green is spot on!

Dean Grey said...

Green, green, green, GREEN!

Mmmmm.....

Fun, unique, and smart composition, Gwen!

Love the way they are huddled together.

The lights and darks are expertly blocked in and that dark green shadow near the lower right corner is BEAUTIFUL!

I like that the background color is a dulled down version of the colors used in the apples and pear. I've got to try that next time I do a still life!

I love the color green!!
