100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Green Apple'
Oil on Canvas panel
 6 x 6

Day 93

I loved the subtle shades of green in this apple, then
that wonderful blush on the front.  As anyone who
lives in South Central PA knows, lately our natural light
has been obscured by rain clouds, and this weekend
was no exception.  I rather liked how the duller light
brought out even more color in this apple - especially
the little glow on the front blush of the apple.

However, I will not complain when we start to get
some bright, sunny Autumn days!

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

These fruit pieces of late would look amazing in a beautiful big kitchen, Claire. Wish I had one! LOL We've had sunny days all weekend and into the week. In fact the stars are out now and I've finally been able to recognize a constellation besides the big and littler dippers. I can now pick out Orion (and his belt)! Love the depth you are obtaining in skin of the fruits!

You are so close to the end of your challenge! I really enjoy these challenges as I can see subtle changes in an artist's work over the course of the challenge. It gives me hope that with enough practice, I might possibly improve!

Sorry to hear that the weather there is still rainy.
