Pear in a Bowl

"Pear in a Bowl"
Day 10 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge
5 x 7" pastel on sanded paper

This is a paint over of an older painting which was also a paint over of an even older painting! The paper is pretty loaded with pastel although I brushed most of the pastel off in between paintings.

Again, I wanted to see what I could do with an abstract of an old favorite subject of pears. The drawing is made up. Someone asked me if this was a painting of a pear in the mirror. Hmmm..not really, but I could see that. Someone else said it looked like a negative photo and yet another person said it was "musical pears". I find it really exciting that people see different things.

Great colouring. A little retro-1950s in its feel.
