"Apple Blossom"




















6 x 6 oil on canvas panel SOLD

This will probably be the last painting I post for at least
another week.
I am in two back to back Art Shows this
weekend
and next week I am moving my Mom across
town to a different
Assisted Living facility. Whew!
Plus, I will be spending a lot of time with her until she
gets oriented to her new surroundings.

I love this ! The progression from the cups tp fruit /vegy with the cups to just fruit is perfect. This one is radiant !

Another gorgeous painting...I love the thought and preparation that you put into your paintings and look forward to each new entry. Best of luck in your shows! I hope that the transition goes smoothly for you and your Mom.

Another lovely painting!

It's hard when we become the mother to our mothers, isn't it? But I found that as she became dependent on me, I loved her even more. Good luck on the move.

Beautiful Gwen.
Good luck with the shows but above all moving your Mom. Know it's such a huge responsibility that also tugs so much at your heart strings.

Clever composition having the apple centered over the pattern like that.

Beautiful composition with the pattern bursting from the apple! Are your shows local, do tell, I'd love to come and see you! After the move, enjoy your time with your Mom, you definitely deserve some time off!

Beautiful painting as usual, Gwen. Good luck with your Art Show as well as moving Mom. I'm sure she'll adjust quickly to her new home.

Kim said...

Boy Gwen, you're busy! Good luck with your Mom's move. Hoping that goes well for both of you. And good luck with your shows! I wish you lots of sales ; )
This is such a cool piece. I love how you arranged the apple to be the "blossom". Awesome.

Karen Martin Sampson said...

I LOVE this painting! It has an almost surreal feeling - does that pattern come out of the apple? Is it a "special" plate to eat off of? Where does the apple finish and the pattern start?
Good luck with the shows...I just came home from a weekend show a few hours south of here...exhausted but it was fun. Sold nothing but did several on spot portrait sketches and gave a talk/demo on portraiture so at least it paid for my gas down there and a couple of meals:-) I moved both of my parents at different times before they died and it was very tiring but they do so much for us when we're growing up...it is good to be there for them when they need us.

Gwen, these little paintings just get better and better! Good luck with the move, been there and it's not easy for you or your mom. Will be thinking about you.

Kelley Sanford said...

Great composition, Gwen. Such a clever girl! Good luck with all that's on your plate.

DEB said...

Gwen, I hope all is going well with your shows and your mom. This apple looks yummy!!

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Good luck with the shows Gwen. Hopefully your Mom will be happy in her new place. I see something like this in my near future as well.
Another great "Gwen Bell" signature piece. I like the way the white of the apple stands out against the warmer colors.
