Six Gala apples and one Yellow Delicious are placed on my favorite bowl with a bunch of black grapes. A checkered cloth lies below the dish. I wanted to portray a sense of old-fashioned warmth and invitation in this drawing. Apples are one of my favorite subjects. You can almost taste their tartness in this drawing.
Nature is my favorite subject - either in painting or drawing. My strongest design element is shape - both positive and negative. That is one reason why I love to depict trees in any season, especially bare trees that reach their limbs up to the sky leaving spaces through which the sky peeks through. There is a certain human aspect in a tree shaped by its environment. Variations in line, hue, and value also mark my work. My personality is calm and steady, and it always shows up in my art.
