My love of painting pears and apples was combined as I set these two friends up in my studio. I say "friends" because that was the first thing that came to mind when the set up seemed to naturally tilt, better yet... lean... with a closeness shared by friends. The title, "Lean on Me", came as easily from the composition... I couldn't seem to get Bill Wither's song, "Lean on Me" out of my head. Like this unlikely couple... we all need someone to lean on... let the person you lean on know how much you appreciate them this Holiday Season. May the light of Christmas light your path and warm your heart... Merry Christmas!

Everyday objects painted from life is the essence of the "Painting a Day" art movement that is gaining momentum in the art collecting market.

Hi Bernie,

I found you first on wetcanvas - just joined today! Love this piece, and I've painted many pears on the past. I have a painting of pears on my painting blog called "Help a Sista!" that I thought you would enjoy.

Good luck, and I'm sure I'll run into you on wetcanvas!

Be Blessed,
Claire
