Apple and Book



Oil on Canvas 14"x11"
I had this antiquarian book on painting and decided to capture the worn look and the slightly beveled edges on the paper. The apple is a classic prop, perhaps next time I'll take a bite out of it. I like this book so much I'm going to be using it for a while in my paintings.

Your paintings are full of beautifully observed light and color, coupled with a spare and exceptional sense of design. I love the still lives with striped paper on your main site too.
