I think this is number 6 in the series. I first painted a red delicious apple that I have peeled half way down. I hated the results, it browned so fast I had to keep adding color to the exposed part of the apple. The peel didn't hang right either, if that is possible. I then tried a granny smith and a gala cut in half. The colors were much softer and I worked on loosing some edges. I am happier with this one. The latest news out on apples is that they reduce your risk of some cancers, so an apple a day may keep the doctor away.
I ended up going to the local open air market Saturday. I thought it might get me out of my funk and Jennifer was sick of being cooped up in the house too. Randy had to work so we set out early so we could beat the approaching storm. When we arrived they had closed the streets down and they were having a Charles Dickens Feastival! Everyone there was dressed in period costumes and everyone spoke with a bad english accent! I am so glad I brought my camera because I took tons of wonderful pictures that I can't wait to paint. I will post a few, you are welcome to paint them also!
