Apple Bake; Oil on Canvas 11″ x 14″

A still life. Not my usual genre. But I had a reason, or should I say reasons.

A competition deadline was looming. A regional competition offered the challenge to create works based upon the theme  “Raw and Cooked”. My wife was in Chicago to attend to some doctor visits with her mother and it was rainy. Perfect time to tackle the challenge.

I already had one work which would fill the bill, Pail by Comparison. I wanted to have four works for submission. Before my wife left, I discussed my ideas with her. Thank goodness. Out came all sorts of cooking and baking utensils and necessities. Plenty of good source material.

Had fun with these apples. While applying the finishing touches to the apples I ran with an idea to put in a smear of Permanent Rose. Worked great.Happy to report that this work was accepted for the competition.

The exhibition will be at The Next Picture Show in Dixon Illinois from August 2 – September 4, 2013.
