One Lovely Red Pear

One Red Pear, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2012
Sold! Private collection, Washington, DC
Nothing is as challenging as something that is so elegant in its simplicity, in form and color, as a red pear. I'm drawn to these at the produce section of the grocery store, as the red borders on crimson, as red as any color I can possibly coax out of my limited palette of paints. These simple things challenge me so deeply, yet I keep coming back for more.
