Green Pears

There's a story behind this piece......  
The pears were given as an "assignment" to the members of Kim Klassen's Test Kitchen.  I looked at the image and knew immediately I had to paint them green.  Some time ago my husband and I were out to dinner at a restaurant in our neighborhood.  They were displaying art from a student at a local university.  The piece that was so striking was a painting of green pears.  They were really green - almost unreal.  We went home and talked about that painting and decided to purchase it.  When we returned the painting had been sold.  Bummer!!  
I used two of Kim's textures -- "robins egg" and "live love laugh".  The mask is from Shadowhouse Creations.

Absolutely beautiful! Just perfect in texture and effects.
I am still clueless about masks, but I admire your work.

This is superb! How did you get the uneven edge?
