Apples


As I was painting these apples, a friend stopped by.
His son, about 3 years old asked if he could eat one.
" Sure" I said!
So he ate it, and asked for the other one also!
I did not get to finish painting these apples.

Ha, funny! But now we can see how well you start; these apples are already very nicely modeled, and you've got that sense of light going well.
You've got to keep decoy fruit around, for cases like this!
