Anjou To The Core


I think most of you have seen this painting before - it's another colored pencil and one that I like even though I'm sure there are plenty of flaws in it.

I'm dragging it out again because I've submitted it to a website specializing in paintings of pears!  I know pears are favorite subjects for paintings so it's a wonder that someone hadn't thought of this before.  Anyway, I've just submitted it and don't know how it's decided whether a painting will be accepted or whether all submissions are accepted or what. 

I have no idea whether my pears will appear on the website or not but it's a huge step for me to put my work, especially work in colored pencil, out there in such a public way.  There are some really, really beautiful pears on that site and if my painting is accepted, it would be a real thrill for me to be in such distinguished company!

Here's the website if anyone wants to take a look at all the beautiful art or even submit their pear paintings:

Jan! This is beautiful! Such gorgeous color. You are really doing well with cp's!

Thanks, Teresa. This is a very old painting and I know it has a lot of flaws. CP will probably never be a favorite medium of mine!

I'm sure you have pears to submit to this website so I hope to see your's there as well as mine!

Your pears are lovely! Great title too. :-) I checked out the pear site and I enjoyed seeing all of the different ways artists chose to interpret pears. Thanks for sharing the link!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! I was glad to share the link - it's so much fun to see all of those pears! Thanks to Teresa and Joey for commenting on the title - it was one of those things that just popped into my mind after painting this and just had to be the title.

Welcome back, Sue!

These pears are gorgeous, Jan! I didn't know you worked in cp's. You do very well with them. Congrats on having them featured at the Pear Gallery!
