Green Apples and Bread

oil painting on canvas, 20" H x 16" W
in a private collection
I painted this still life at the 2009 Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival. The still life was set up for about a dozen artists who were painting in different media. I was one of only two oil painters in the group. The others painted watercolor or pastels. It was really great to be painting plein air (outdoors) in an art festival setting, and the Woodlands Waterway is the perfect environment for it. People milled all around and stopped to ask questions as I painted. That interaction itself inspires an artist, or at least it does me.
