6x6in oil on canvas board $100.
I have been told that crabapples make a wonderful jam.
I wonder why the name 'crab" apple. Anyone know?
After painting these in watercolor it felt weird to use oil paint.
A good weird though as it shakes me out of any comfort zone
I may be feeling..
I tried for similar colors as in the watercolor, but look how
different they appear. I guess I will be going back and forth
in my quest to achieve a cohesive style between the two mediums.
Almost completed another oil crabapple in a rectangular format.
I also finished another farmers market. Love doing those and still
have more to do, but these gorgeous branches came along...
A pat on Julie's back for productivity!
