My sister and I had the privilege to paint a Pear for display in Pearland, Texas. Not only does the Pear depict Pearland's former mayor, Tom Reid, but also his many achievements during his time in office, primarily with education, transportation, and art and culture.
Mr. Reid was instrumental in building Pearland's first library, which bears his name. He served for approximately thirty years as Pearland's mayor and retired with the designation of Mayor Emeritus.
My sister and I collaborated in painting the Pear. We were lucky that it squeezed through the front door of my home. And we quickly realized that it takes...a lot...of paint to cover a four foot pear.

Tinged with a touch of envy, It is enjoyable watching a child dream. To go to a place where morning glories truly do become fashion statements.
