New Crop - first of the season apple paintings and OPA

New Crop   oil      8" x 8"
It's the time of year I am starting to see the wonderful color of apples in dappled light. I continue to just love their ornamental effect against warm and cool green leaves. They are an exciting part of the garden color that is so prevalent right now. Another bit of excitement for me today is that I just found out that my painting "White Roses" was accepted to the Western Regional Oil Painter's of America show in Denver. A good day!

I am hating google "please prove you're not a robot" this morning. It has taken me 4 or 5 tries on every comment I've tried to make, and sometimes erases my comment before I can get it right! AARGH!

Anyway, I've been trying to tell you how much I love this apple painting, Mary! The depth of the shadows behind the apples is gorgeous. And your color choices are always so lovely!

(Hope this comment works!)
