I brought home a few Bosc pears the other day, intending to do a painting that included all three of them.  I like their subtle, warm colors, but found that on a white background they looked pretty drab.  So I started playing around with colored backgrounds and soon came across this combination, which I liked.   I settled on a simple composition using just one of the pears and a well-worn cloth napkin from my sideboard.
