Polonium Pear #210
I started out tonight with a different subject in mind, but as I worked on the painting this radioactive pear came out. There has been some discussion on the number of pears painted by daily painters. Radioactivity is also sadly in the news with Alexander Litvinenko's poisoning. Adding it all together we have "Polonium Pear #210" for a title. The color may be even more vivid in person; it may be dangerous to get too close.
No actual pears were harmed (or involved) in this painting.
