Copper and Apples, Oil, 6" x 6"

This piece was composed having in mind the tall copper cup and the two apples that almost looked like they were competing with one another. The copper sits like a judge between them, but already is taking a side. 

In the end the composition worked out because of the strong, warm light that fell upon all three objects helped to unify them. The glow of the subjects gave the picture a life of its own.


  1. I noticed this painting on the Daily Paintworks site and had to comment. I think this is lovely.
