Day # 10

                                                 5 x 5  oil on board  

I took the weekend off from my painting challenge.  I went to Atlanta to visit my children and grandchildren.  My boss (me!) allows for some slackin' to have fun family time.  I did get seven sketches done in preparation for this coming week.  Now...time to get back in the saddle.

This colorful apple was just for fun.  I used a pallette knife on the apple and create a textured surface on the foreground by cross hatching with my brush .   Oil paints  lend themselves to so many different techniques due to their creamy consistency and slower drying time.

Available for purchase:   Please email me at to order.

  1. I'm a quilter who loves color, so I find your "just for fun" apple very appealing. Fun stuff.
