“The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze
."…John Updike, September

Every year I go Apple Picking with my family, the day after Thanksgiving it’s a tradition…See the photos and read the story HERE

My apples are usually hyperreal…this time I concentrated on the abstract shapes of windfalls rather than reality…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper..

Featured in Friends of RedBubble 24th September 2013

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Beautiful choice of colors, and effects, light also. I love ‘fall’ imagery, always have, even before living in the desert where it means finally blessed relief from months of oppressive heat! I like that the image is very alive, unlike some fall images that are very ‘dead.’ Not saying one is right or wrong, just like the alive-ness of this and that it still says ‘fall.’ It’s joyous.

  • Thanks so much Cindy…I was looking for some of my other “wind” style images, but found that I had taken most of them out…I added a few to the description page just now, but I will have to paint more….I’m really happy you like this one…
