Pastel Pears

Pears come in a number of variations of the hour glass figure...  like women.  The Bosc pear is longer with fewer curves... The Anjou has a thicker shape with slight curves and the Bartlett is a bit bottom heavy with a small top end.  But within these descriptions many exceptions abound.  One can run into trouble generalizing about anything...

While shopping a couple of days ago my eye spied this variety of Bartlett pears from Argentina (the little sticky said so).  Looking lumpy and cute I carefully placed them in a bag,   already visualizing them in a painting...  
Before I could get them painted they were semi-spoken for.   Imported then Exported...
