Lean In -sold


oil 6x12 inches click for purchase information With this one I set out to paint a simple subject and not crowd the canvas. I've been thinking about how allowing some breathing room between and around objects might be more pleasing. I enjoyed the wide format. I wiped out my first attempt. Next day I started again and got the fresh look I wanted. The apple flesh was a bit yellowed by then, but I liked it. Tomorrow I'll have sinus surgery. Here's wishing everyone a great 4th of July! I'll be back when I can.

  2. This is wonderful! Great composition. I love the bright spot created by the face of the apple slice against the darker colors of the reds and grays. Lovely!

    Hope your surgery goes well and that you have a speedy recovery!
