How About Them Apples...?

 "Two Apples, Blue"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas

Talk about a still life coming together by accident! I put this plate on the floor while moving easels around the other day, and voila! It's great when I don't have to spend an hour fussing with a setup - running back and forth, minutely adjusting everything over and over until the elements are working together in just the right way. It's not quite as good for exercise, however.

So now I have two these two apples on red and on blue, and I'm contemplating adding a yellow composition to this duo to complete the primary set. Could be an excellent way to spend a Sunday!


If you're looking for an excellent way to spend an afternoon next weekend, The Gallery at the Watershed is hosting their inaugural "Good Old-Fashioned Art Auction" on Saturday the 12th from 3-5 pm. This is going to be a fun event, a great chance to score some fabulous art, and of course, an opportunity to rub elbows with the likes of me. Hope to see you!
