|"Sweet Sixteen" - 16 x 16 inches - oil on canvas|
I had a strong vision for this painting and, for whatever reason, I really wanted to paint 16 apples in a very geometric, symmetrical pattern. Each apple is slightly different - a couple are upside down, one still has the supermarket bar code, one has leaves, etc. Some apples I painted in just a few strokes - quick and easy. Others, I labored over, scraped off the paint, and started over again and again. Who knows why...some days the paint flows and others not.

And, if you're starting to think about the holidays, a house or pet portrait makes a really nice gift so now is the time to start planning. For more information on ordering a custom painting, click here.
