"Orchard Fresh" oil on canvas

Had this apple that I wanted to paint and I didn't know where to set it to best be able to represent it..............I ended up balancing it on top of the canvas, clamped to the easel....then I painted it quickly.........and had to wash all the paint off so I could eat it!!

9x12 oil on stretched canvas,,,,, sold

Nice apple and I identify. Frequently my models get strapped to my canvas or easel. I've even hung a few things from the light fixture that's just above where I work.

Very nice apple paintings on these last two. Gotta vote for the first one in the grass, it has such strength. Having said that, I really like this one also. Great work lately.

Daily Painter... how you can do that is amazing. Way to go. I'll be looking in with admiration and awe.

Hi Vikki! I want to try hanging something from the light fixture!!
What a great and dramatic perspective that would give!
