Granny Smith #2

Granny Smith #2
10/26: Granny Smith #2, oil on canvas panel, 5x5 in.

While I'm happy if I only partly succeed in modeling a spheroid object, I'm happier if I can convey some of the dignity of a thing - especially if I like it a lot, as I do a Granny Smith apple. (People paint apples all the time, and it bothers me when somebody can reduce one to a series of flashy strokes but lose the simple essence of the fruit.)

I agree, this is a dignified yet gleeful apple. I love it.
