Apple & Bottle

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 in -- SOLD

This is another cute little apple from the WSU orchard in Pullman, WA. I saw a very interesting article about apples in The New Yorker recently. I didn't know that the orchard of WSU is one of three major apple orchards in the US which develop superior varieties of apples for eating. For example, Fuji is one of my favorite, but I didn't know that there is so much variation in taste and quality among orchards. The Fuji from WSU is smaller and less reddish, but the best kind of Fuji I've had so far. We've been buying apples and other fruits from the WSU fruit market. Those fruits have been my main still-life models and breakfast lately.
