Judith E Bayes and Pears

Judith E Bayes

Treasure Island, FL

What is it about a pear that intrigues artists? We all seem to be drawn to them. They are the fundamental shape in so many still life paintings. Here they are the total of the still life. “Scarlet Harvest” is the contrast between the soft red-ripe luscious texture of the fruit and the hard grain of the floor. The underlying harmony of the colors, both rich warm colors and the striking differences in texture make this small painting worth a second look.
