Late Afternoon













I've started the canvas size drawing, 10 x 20" of these magnificent apples in the warm, quiet late afternoon sun.  They seem to glow from within and THAT -- the light -- always the light, is what is there to be captured.  The light, the glorious image, and the emotion of the moment are what I have to hold onto throughout the whole painting process.  If I lose any of those, the painting loses its meaning.  So here we go....

From tiny beginnings....


















Ah, finally, today I started a new painting.  This is the preliminary tiny, tiny sketch of the set up.  This sketch is about 2 x 6" with the final canvas measuring 10 x 20 inches.  This should be fun.  I'll keep you posted along the way.  Promise.
