Day 11 - 30/30 Challenge - Pair of Pears

Pair of Pears
Pastel, 6" x 6", $35

I love pears, but I can't buy more than two at a time. Once they ripen, I have a very small window of time to eat them up before they're just mush. I hope these warm yellow pears and glowing burgundy background, warm your dreary winter day!

I set these up yesterday in the kitchen, with some burgundy tissue paper, with the diffused afternoon light at my back. But for some reason, I struggled. I got frustrated. I scrapped what I was doing and started over. I even considered doing them in watercolor, but persevered with the pastel and I think, ultimately, the exercise was successful. 

Thanks for following along! You can find more artists participating in this 30/30 Challenge at Leslie Saeta's blogsite.
