great colors and brushwork. I like the little bit of one more off to the side.

Thanks Frank,
I painted this as a variation of the "Foursome" pears done earlier this winter. While the first one seemed to paint itself, I struggled with this one because my mind kept going back to the first version. Once I made myself focus on just what was before me I relaxed and here are the results. I like it alot.

Nice one! I like the way the pears are crowded together, like they are all trying to push to the front.

OOoh it's different from your others! I like it a lot. They are so plump....

Thanks Terry,
I am finding that the square format is the ideal shape to design within. You can break more of the rules and get away with it.

Thanks Katie May,
Pears do have many planes, some very subtle. Plump is what I was after!
