Three's a Pear

Bought some nice organic pears at Sprouts and decided to do something different in the still life box... used tissue paper to create a backdrop and table top... a different look, quite colorful!  Hope you like it.

"Green Backs"

This is a cabbage (otherwise known as - Brassica oleracea) I recently purchased for some stir fry...  The background I used under the still life was a purple cloth I usually use as a back drop.

The name is reminiscent of the New Year's dinners my mother cooked as I was growing up...along with black eyed peas to bring good luck to the new year, you had to have greens to represent prosperity!
