Red Apples

I think I may have finished the big oil painting of red apples.

I will need to stare at it for a while before I am sure.
No need to be hasty.
Drop by the studio to see it and tell me what you think.

This is the photograph I worked from.
It was taken it in Williamson, New York, years ago. Somewhere near the lake where all the orchards are.

I had just gotten my first digital camera, it changed everything about my painting.
You can only imagine how many images I have squirreled away that I could make art from.
Flowers, leaves, plants - thousands of them at the ready.
Image hoarder.

A few close-ups - so you can see the paint better.
This painting is extra gooey.

This is fabulous! Such vibrancy and movement!

I like the painting. The branch leads you toward the upper left, but the weight/strength of the apples pulls you toward the right again.
