Just... wow. So beautifully rendered! Rich, autumnal. Nice piece, Jeanne!

Thank you SO much, Kelley! Pears have always been delightful to paint with their voluptuous forms. The Bosc offers some marvelously interesting colorways as the brown skin seems to cover the bright green beneath. Patience is required to capture it accurately...and painting rustic wood boxes and blocks is an all time favorite of mine! Thank you for your lovely comments! Jeanne

It's outstanding, I voted for you on Alex Perez Exhibit. Your work is amazing thank you for sharing.

Oh, Joan, thank you so much!! That's lovely of you to vote for me; I truly appreciate it. It's quite an honor to be among such a talented group of realist painters and I hope my work proves worthy of their company. Certainly it's an inspiration to climb out of the dark ages of classicism and into the light with 21st century realist masters! Jeanne
