I've just added these two in my online shop. The grape one is tiny at 4" square here and the pear onblue willow is here. It's a 6" one. I took this blurry photo of a Cezanne painting of his uncle at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. It inspired me to use thicker paint.
These apples were labeled "Happy Apples" on their bag. Had never heard of that type before. I must say, they did made me happy to paint after such a long hiatus.
A couple of weeks ago, we were able to have a great time in New York City for my first visit ever. The Metropolitan Museum of Art had several Cezanne paintings, my favorite being a small one of apples. Kenny loved it too and drew in front of it for a while. It just shows the indomitable human spirit when I'm able to even try to make a painting after seeing all the amazing work at the Met and the MOMA. Seeing work in person always challenges me to stretch the use of physical paint and texture.
This painting is a part of the sale in my Etsy store going on this week. 8" square on wooden panel. Right here.
