Four Pairs of Pears in Watercolor on Yupo Paper

"Fruits like having their portrait painted.
They seem to sit there and
ask your forgiveness for fading.
Their thought is given off with their perfumes.
They come with all their scents,
they speak of the fields they have left,
the rain which has nourished them,
the daybreaks they have seen."
~ Paul Cezanne

I see that a lot of the daily painters online are painting fruit, especially pears. This got me thinking that I have never painted them before. It's hard to believe, but true. This was a fun little series, painted from life with a playful attitude and a sprinkling of experimentation. I can see why people enjoy painting them. Their gestures are expressive and their personified silhouettes can be quite endearing. After a couple of days of the cats rolling them off the table they aged rather quickly.
