The pear looks polished and delicious; the twine looks rough. Beautifully done and great illustration of the concept. Love the colors on the pear and the fine detail on the string.

Beautiful pear! And wow, amazing job on the frayed string. I'm not sure why one would hang a pear, other than to draw it - perhaps to tempt some cute wildlife into the yard?

Cathy...This is such an inspired idea!!! It's such an unexpected twist on the classic pear still life. I can't decide if it's whimsical or a tad macabre, which is what makes it fascinating. Love, love, love it!

I love the detail of the fraying on the string (obviously I have an affinity with frayed things!!)
