IF: Going to Seed



Apples by the side of the road, fallen from
there tree, warmed by the late fall sun and
rotting quickly.  The birds, deer and many small
animals find them sweet and soothing.
The Honey Bee's get drunk on the nectar and zig zag
back to the hive.  Seeds from these apples will appear
as sprouts in the spring, miles from this road and
far from our memory.

Lovely work; loose, authoratative brushwork; nice blog. Thanks for the introduction--I will enjoy revisiting, being inspired, and looking forward to the day when I, too, can paint whatever strikes my fancy.

Hi Doug, how clever you are, when I first looked at this picture I thought it was a photo, you are so very talented Mr Artist Daniels...........
And the apples look good enough for me to eat....;-)

Wonderful piece, I'd be so proud to have painted that! It's what we all strive for. A stunning success. Can't wait to see more - I'll be checking back every day.

What size is it?

Thanks for your wonderful comments.
With watercolor there are success's
and experiments...you never know
what you're going to get. It's a fun
medium and challenging. I use it for
imediate gratification...if it's a success.
Thanks again for visiting.
