Madonna of the Pear

That was the title of an painting by 15th century artist Albrecth Durer – I liked the painting and just finished a collage that has both pears and a Madonna. It features two versions of the same photo that I took of a pear but with different lighting. It really looks sort of Dali-esque to me. This work is 20×24″ framed. It was a tough piece to complete and went through a lot of phases but I like the results. I used a lot of gold leaf on this one.
Here’s Durer’s painting – check out the weird expression on the madonna’s face.

Underneath it is the collage I finished this evening – really different!
