Apple Madness


Shaking the rust off of my brushes here in Parrsboro. The weather for the drive up was stellar. The skies were blue with big puffy clouds and the light driving into town at about 8:30 PM Monday evening  was spectacular. It was the summer solstice but It stays light longer up here anyway because of the latitude.
Today I broke out the gear and was going to paint a sweet bouquet of wildflowers in a jelly jar....but quickly came to my senses and settled on these apples, which were difficult enough!! You can't stay away from painting very long before you lose your mojo ;)

This is a great little study of apples. I know what you mean about taking a break. It's like exercising, it's hard to get going again.
