Pear on a Plate
UPDATE April 2009: Since 2007 Forelle Pears have often been my painting subjects. Here are some more recent Forelle Pear paintings: Forelle Pear #1, Forelle Pear #2, Forelle Pear #3, and Forelle Pear #4. Thanks for visiting, Liz
The Forelle Pear is my favorite fruit. It has a very crisp and sweet flavor, and they always are beautifully formed. Forelle pears initially are yellow and green at the grocers, but as they ripen they begin to develop a rosy tint, that eventually turns into a deep crimson color. This is the best time to eat them. I also believe that this is the most interesting time to paint them...
