The Pear series has been an interesting journey and started when I first moved to Canada in 2009. I was painting in public which I always like to do, but having been fresh out of Australia I was busy painting tropical scenes and my normal whacky stuff. My art simply wasn't moving off the walls fast enough to keep my art career alive. I turned to the owner of the venue half jokingly and said, "What do I have to do to sell art in this country". His reply shaped the future of my art. "It's either fruit bowls or landscapes Bill"..... So it happened.
I started dreaming about intertwined pears, crazy fields of giant fruit and more. It naturally flowed from my mind and even better I could convey and story or message that I wanted with them. This is only the beginning of this series and there is so much more to come. Enjoy!
