Besides the color combination, my favorite parts of this painting are the leaf, stem and very top of the pear. I would imagine that most artists have their favorite little sections. 

Did you know that in Christian symbolism, the pear symbolizes Christ's love for mankind? Neither did I until this morning when I did a search on 'pear symbolism' and the website for Symbols in Christian Art And Literature popped up...intriguing!

Pears have been cultivated and enjoyed for thousands of years. Homer referred to them as a "gift from the gods" in the Odyssey.

Today's Quotation: "A man watches his pear tree day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap!"
-Abraham Lincoln
