Art: Imitating Apple and Imitating Apple Art


I'm so happy with this painting. It's almost as big as me. It delights me so, to paint the actual apple and then be free to paint the bib with the apples, that part feels more abstract. Many thanks to Jennifer Balkan, for teaching me about values and creating depth. The secret: for beautiful shadows, add the compliment of the color.

I really love this work. The colors spring out to greet the viewer. The pattern is so appealing. Great landmark piece!!!

Paint with no fear.
keep rotating graphic design, kids books, paintings--
Just keep creating and producing.
Eventually people will come to you.
