Three Seckel Pears

Three Seckel Pears, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2012

As the days wind down to the end of the 2012 promotion, I decided to try my hand at a trio of adorable little Seckel pears. Seckel pears are named after a farmer from Pennsylvania who discovered the fruit in the early 19th century. Today everybody has a chance to discover this charming little painting of Seckel pears, done by an artist in Pennsylvania in the early 21st century.
History is amazing, isn't it?
