- Ah….The simple pear comes in many different shapes and colors.
- Even the word “pear-shaped” has different connotations, such as when the term is applied to people, where it means narrow at the shoulders and wide at the hips, when said of someone's voice, "pear-shaped" means rich and sonorous, when describing a situation which something went awry or perhaps horribly wrong and in drawing, an uneven circle is often referred as “pear-shaped.” So, I guess then you can say another one of my favorite subjects is the uneven circle!!!
- You can paint a pear so many different colors and ways, never boring-always fun!
- And Pears are great study techniques for light and shadow...thank goodness we have a pear tree in our yard!
