Silent Consumption

A pear should have such a texture as leads to silent consumption”

I love to play around with pear shapes. There is no ‘wrong’ form as each pear is unique and slightly different.

This pear was done with my new Caran d’ache Pablo colored pencils. Smooth lay down, creamy, no waxy build up. Ability to layer color on top of luscious color and blend-able.

A perfect compliment to my Moleskine journal.

A side by side comparison to Prisma colored pencils. So many colors to choose from! A bit harder to color with, and a waxy build up, but still lovely and fun to play with.

And did I mention the color choices?

Endless possibilities…

I like playing with pears so much that I actually have some pear stamps, so I used those too.

This is one of my favorite pieces, it was published in Cloth, Paper, Scissors July/Aug ’08. Layers of papers, wax, inks, stamps, shading, writing on canvas.

This journal page was the inspiration for the piece.
