Apple Gala!

Apple Gala

6" by 6" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted.

Today was challenge # 5 was to paint fruit and to first cut it up to give it interest.... so I took a gala apple out of the frig and cut it up to make a pleasing composition.  I am really happy with it and had a lot of fun painting it! I spent the day earlier painting and visiting with my friends and giving each other inspiration and encouragement. You can see all our work at Claudia Finn's blog. Claudia Finn's Blog She is doing a really cool series of horses!  I am going to include a piece that I have been working on below that is a different kind of challenge that I am doing on my own.  I wanted to play with minimal details using line and color and it is a wonderful thing to paint something different like this.  It is a 24 by 30 so the size was a fun change also.  Hope you had a great day today.  I am a day late with my challenge but have been working on a pet portrait commission that I will share when it is finished and my client says it is o.k. as it is a surprise present.  My next challenge # 6 is to whip something up.  The example in the book is of all the items that go into making lemonade. Hmmm...not sure what I will come up with but we will see....Any ideas on what I can name this little girl?  Thanks for all the encouragement and help.
