This little painting was fun to do, I am getting into the groove with these Fruit & Vegetable paintings. It is so nice to have the object in front of me, so that if I need more information, I just have to get up and move closer to see.
I think this is an Ida red apple, the variety I buy the most. Our other family favourites are red delicious, golden delicious and granny smith. My husband takes one to work nearly every day, because it is so convenient, it doesn’t need any prep and isn’t messy. I usually give the boys apple slices for school, I wonder how many apples I’ve cut for them in the last 12 years?
Later this month I will take the boys to a local farm to pick our own apples and/or pumpkins, it’s a family Fall tradition.
I am not sure if to keep going with the Fruit & Vegetable theme for the rest of the challenge, or to go back to Flowers & Foliage, or Landscape? I’d love to get some feedback from you. And while you’re at it, I’d love to hear which is your favourite Donna Grandin painting?
