I love working from life... it hons the skills of observation for an artist. After I set up this small still life it occurred to me that this pear was nude. In fact... Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres' "The Bather of Valpinçon" came to mind. Click on the link and let me know what you think. For me... pears are as beautiful as the human form.
