I had fruit on my mind today. After the landscape, I set up this pear and had at it. I had kind of decided that I wasn't going to do solo fruit for a while, but I wanted to paint and knew I could whip this one out on a small canvas and try a new idea I had about using a smaller knife on these smaller pieces. The idea kinda worked and I didn't lose the object to the knife strokes. The resulting piece turned out well.
