Buddha, Seashell and Fruit

Here is a still life I painted with an artist friend at her place.  It is an interesting juxtaposition of a large conch shell, a jade buddha statue, and some pears and apples.  I did this in soft pastel.  I used more of a linear approach this time instead of using the side of the pastel stick, and I like the texture.  I accentuated the light by making the darks a bit darker than they actually were.  I also simplified the background by making it abstract.
