Burgundy Apple-Still Life Fruit and Fabric Oil Painting by Marina Petro

Artist~Marina Petro, Saratoga Springs, NY USA
"Burgundy Apple"
Original oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel

I used the same fabric that the apple and pear painting in my last post was painted on....just another section of it.  I also added the polka dots just above the deep burgundy section above the red flower in the foreground. I'll probably use this fabric again. It was fairly easy. I'm liking easy a lot lately. The primary color in this painting is RED. Red is the color of energy. It denotes life force, anger, passion and sensuality, among other things.

We had our first major snow here in upstate NY. It started yesterday and ended this afternoon. We have well over a foot. Predictions are that more is coming tomorrow morning. It was very beautiful but I can do without snow very nicely. I completed a very striking sunflower painting yesterday and wanted to post it today but it was too dark to take pictures.
