Still Life with Apple

"Still Life with Apple", 10 x 10 In, Oil on Panel
As we go into the dark of winter I will be doing more still life paintings with studio lighting. Right now, the natural light from my two big 4 x 4 foot skylights starts to fail around 3 pm as the sun is so low in the sky and drops behind the big cedars out in back--if there is any sun at all! So I'm just starting to remember how much I struggled with still life set-ups last winter.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. The orange/blue combination is nice. The composition is, too. Well done!

  2. I'm loving this! Beautiful muted colors and lovely brushstrokes!

  3. Beautiful warm/cool shifts throughout; lovely glow from the apple.
    Isn't it heartening that we're only three weeks away from the solstice?

  4. This is a peaceful painting. I enjoy the subdued color and paint application.
