I found a few organic pears at the store that still had leaves on them, something I don't see often. This one, with it's bent shape and downward pointed stem caught my eye. Droopy little guy looks kind of sad.
After painting from photos the last few days, it felt good to paint something from life. I like to do both, as there are advantages and disadvantages with each.
