JEANNE ILLENYE overturned basket of apples in long grass realism fruit oil painting capturing nature's transient beauty


Overturned Apple Basket
20x16 inches / oil on canvas
 
This painting is reminiscent of an old world ambience and implies a romantic story of a languid day apple picking, perhaps laying in the long, cool grass while selecting those without bruises (which I always love to add to show transience in nature) and sampling the harvest.  With attempting to follow the trend away from classical realism toward contemporary realism, I'd abandoned so much of my work, this included, until Alex Perez requested a painting for his gallery's fall show. 
"Happy Autumn!"
