Apples and Umbrella

In searching for a subject I turned to the 3 bags of apples that I had stored in my refrigerator. I knew that I wanted to paint an image with many multiples. The silver tray has been in my husband's family for many years and provided a good surface for the apples. I liked the reflection. The umbrella I have had for several years. I at one point envisioned suspeding them opened from my ceiling. I decided that wasn't a very logical solution in my stufio which is small.

A lovely painting, Linda. A softness about it, very pretty apples and shiny silver!

So beautiful! I love your color palette and the composition. There are so many favorite spots in this...the variety of color in the apples, the wonderful swirls in the glass, the ribs of the umbrella...wonderful!

Linda, More stunning works! Your combination of colors and composition are a winning team. I could not make a choice between the two pieces. You have a lovely softness about your paintings that makes them very soothing and easy to live with.
