'Pears de Deux'
Oil on Canvas panel

Day 90

I loved this pair (no pun intended), and the interesting
shadow that the stem created on my backdrop.
It reminded me of a pas de deus in ballet, where
two dancers dance together. 

 I am very fortunate to have orchards all around where
I live, and my favorite is Hollabaugh's which is right
up the road from me in Biglerville, PA.
Recently I called them because I wanted to get some
fruit that still had the stems and some leaves attached.
They were so gracious - they actually drove me
right up into the orchard and let me pick out
exactly what I was looking for.  (Just writing this
reminded me that I need to go there soon to
 purchase some more honey crisp apples!)

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

The shadow falling on the wall is done with so much of perfection that I feel the gap between the subject and the backdrop..a very lovely pair from your backyard!

Love this painting, it has a different feel to it, just a bit mysterious and I love that shadow.
