Apple Edge

Apple Edge
DPW $50

     How best to make an apple interesting? Once again, I tried placing it on the very edge, letting the shadow drift over and off. I am hoping for some tension that will add drama to the still life.
     I want my little fruit paintings to be somewhat poetic, not telling everything, but more like a haiku than Paradise Lost. I enjoy finding the colors that make up the white of the apple insides and the range of reds on the outside, and then paying meticulous attention to that seed.


  1. I tried to leave a comment on the Bowl of Fruit post but could not find the "comment" area. I did want you to know that I think it is a fabulous painting and your use of red is awesome.

    1. Thank you, Julie, for commenting here.
      I appreciate it.
