Here is my Bartlett Pear colored pencil piece along with its companion, Bosc Pear. These were enjoyable to draw. The pears were so richly colored that I couldn't resist buying them. They made very good models for art works!

And speaking of food and art, if you've been reading here a while you probably have heard me go on about kiddo's life threatening food allergy to peanut. Today I received a timely email from the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network and thought I would share the news with you here. Some of you may be fans of the singer Trace Adkins, who will be appearing on the TV show, "The Celebrity Apprentice" and may find this interesting.

I really like both of these...your colored pencil work is really nice. I enjoy the subtle color changes a lot!

These are just beautiful. What is it about still-life fruits that I love so much? I guess because such a small, seemingly ordinary thing can have such beauty. And that you can almost smell them...

Ann, these pears are exquisite! You really captured their subtle differences in shape and color.
