Bosc Pear Study

Bosc Pear Study, 2007, oil on canvas, 8 x 6 inches
It finally happened! The first painting in my new place. It has taken a while to settle in and get used to a new routine, which is something I still haven't been able to figure out yet. Very late last night, after relaxing, having dinner and throwing out the garbage I set to work on this study. The other night after getting off the train, I went looking for a red pear. To my luck none of the markets in Astoria had one. Instead I found this Bosc Pear full of little freckles. A panel has been set aside for a more detailed painting, but before I work on it, it's best to get acquainted with the subject.
