Artwork Description

The high mountain crags are home to that majestic creature, the Bighorn pear. The nimble pears somehow traverse the steep rocks without slipping and falling to their doom, and few fructovores can reach them in their chosen home. In the fruiting season, male pears often engage in vicious stem-butting contests, and the crack of horns (and squish of fruit) resounds through the mountains. Here, a male pear keeps watch over a female pear and a pearlet (the stem will fall off as the young pear matures.)

Follow-up to the Mammoth Garlic. I'm on some kind of animal-fruit kick...

I have looked through your gallery and what I see is someone heading straight to the top. I can see you having your own book of Art with comments like, "Farside". Keep up the great work that will no doubt bring joy to all who see it.
