Pears, Pears Everywhere!

I love drawing and painting pears. It's one of the few things that I feel confident enough to draw. Sure, it's just a basic shape, but, when it comes to drawing (anything) I don't really have a lot of confidence in my artistic skill. I guess I could delve in deep and recognize that this is because I have not applied enough time to practice and hone my skills. But let's not go there right now.

Anyway, I've been drawing some pears lately... mostly because one of my contacts on Flickr mentioned that she liked my pears that I made previously, and she creates beautiful Asian influenced ATCs... so we entered into a trade. Since I rarely look for 1 on 1 trades, I don't have a stash of my own ATCs so I needed to make some more pears!

Which created a new problem for me, because, well, some of the materials I used to create those previous pears were stashed away in boxes (I've been trying to clean up the garage for well over a year now!) so I needed to improvise. I like what I came up with though...

I call these three my "Infinite Pear" series.
