I don't know about the old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", but I know that apples are exceptionally fun to arrange in still lifes to paint, and I don't think I am speaking out of turn when I say that artists can't do enough of them. I bought these Granny Smith apples at the neighborhood market, and I have placed them in many different and interesting compositions. I have this desire to paint each composition before going on to some other subject! Obsessive? I suppose so, but there is a certain (if not - temporary) satisfaction in obsession.....at least, until it is played out! This painting can be purchased by clicking Apples or the Title anywhere on this post.
