Sweethearts


Painted on black gesso, these are the tiniest Granny Smith apples that I've ever seen. They are almost bite-sized.  And I exercised a lot of artistic license with them, but I'm still enjoying experimenting with the Pantone color "Tangerine Tango."  I can't help myself. I really love the color orange mixed with gray.



Now, I'm off to take my little Rodeo for a walk.  It is gorgeous here today.  Sunny and 70 degrees.  We are hoping that Phil doesn't see his shadow tomorrow!
