"Home Grown" 6x6

Oil on Hardboard 6”x 6”

Last week I had the chance to have dinner with a wonderful gardener and her family. Before we sat down to an alfresco dinner we toured her garden. She prefers to stay away from your everyday flora and fauna and concentrates on seeking out the unusual. I always come away with a cutting or two. The espalier apple trees where just starting to bare fruit so I swiped a few. They weren’t ripe but I didn’t know when I would be getting back her way and I thought they would be a nice subject for a painting.
