Pear and Pitcher
(24" x 18", oil on canvas)

A spare composition and a more limited palette suit my mood as the light changes in these the early days of autumn. I've set up a tension between the two not-quite-equal halves of the painting, the pear on one side, the pitcher on the other. The pear sits in warmth, while the pitcher is decidedly cool in temperature; the leaf makes a delicate bridge between the two.
