THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Spring is in the air with the Still-Life with Apples painting. A playful combination of pastel colors, pinks, greens and yellows, this piece showcases the fruits of the warmer months budding and blossoming. The pink apple is sweet and playful, inviting one to take their first steps back out into nature after a long winter of dullness and lifelessness, while the green apple is a prominent symbol of nature, renewal, life and energy. The yellow apple fits in well with its representation of sunshine and happiness, and the lighted nature of this painting provides a sunshiny outlook on the rest of the work.
