THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Apples and pears are two fruits that hold a lot of symbolism regarding Christianity. The Apples and Pears painting creates a nice contrast between two of the main principles of this religion: sin and perfect love. The apples here are representative of the original sin that everyone is said to possess upon birth with their hopeful, sunshiny yellow color. The pears symbolize the embodiment of God's love, the love that can guide sinners out of their ways and back to perfect harmony with the Creator. Painted with similar brushstrokes, this painting represents the way that these two principles go hand in hand with one another.
