10 x 10" oil on canvas panel
ships from The Dutch Art Gallery
At first glance the missing slice might be obvious.
It's on the table, right? But on closer inspection,
the missing slice is actually on the apple.
When I was doing the set up, as usual, I got hungry
for a little taste of what I was painting. I took another
sliver off of the apple and continued painting. It was
only after I was well into the painting that I realized
that the slice on the table no longer matched the
slice out of the apple. Duh! Of course it changed it!
There was no going back. I tried to paint it back in
but it looked all wrong, so I returned it to it's original
No excuse, it was a case of stomach over mind.
