This painting was a challenge. It was the largest oil painting I had done up to this point and was reworked a couple of times. I love the outcome, and I enjoy it everytime I visit my mother's house (she refuses to part with it).
This painting came very naturally after doing the small fruit studies. I wanted to use only true primary and secondary colors. For me the two overlapping apples are like two souls who are different but some how linked to one another.
