apples

Apple Basket

It's nearly apple season season here in our southern mountains. Choosing to paint apples this time, I decided to place them in an old kitchen basket.The variety of textures in this composition was challenging to capture in paint. I did like the warm glow of the basket complementing the crisp, cool light on the apples. Now I'm thinking apple pie, apple bread, apple crisp, apple chips....how do you enjoy apples?

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!
Jennifer, is eating an entire apple pie a problem? We love apple pie too :-)
