"Apple & Pear"
Still life oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel
This painting went fairly smoothly. There are times when it is truly a struggle. I never know which ones are going to end up that way until I begin to paint.
I love the rich burgundy in this piece and the accent of the green apple. The shade of green in this apple represents 'healing' in a person's energy field. The color green that represents 'prosperity' is darker, more like the color of grass.
Today's quotation: “First there is an ending, then a beginning, with an important empty fall time in between. That is the order of things in nature. Leaf-fall, winter, and then the green emerges again from the dry brown wood. Human affairs would flow along similar channels if we were better able to stay in the current.”
