Over Your Shoulder

Over Your Shoulder, 6 x 6

Apples are a favorite of so many painters as a subject--in addition to their nice shape and the many varieties out there, they carry much symbolism....everything from "bad" or "poison" apple, to the all-American apple pie, Johnny Appleseed, and William Tell. These were a product of my seven-hour studio day recently--a day I am hoping to recreate soon. :)

Hi Julie.
Another lovely still life painting. I could easily eat them. Well done. All the best Julie.

Lovely, Julie. I personally find these two-toned apples one of the hardest things to paint. Nice job!

These apples have character. You have given them life. It must be the energetic way they are painted.

For me the apple, like your gorgeous painting is all positive. They are my life savers at the end of a long working day. Yum.

These look like Macintoshes my all time favorite apples.
