A Love Affair With Apples?

"Satisfaction lies in mindful repetition, the discovery of endless richness in subtle variations on familiar themes."  
~ George B. Leonard

After posting my painting "An Apple A Day" last week, I got to thinking about how much pleasure is derived from this simple, yet ancient fruit.  That led me to thinking about how many times I have included apples in my watercolour paintings.  So just for fun, I thought I'd share some of these apple paintings with you!

Apples - A pleasure to look at, an enjoyable and nutritious treat to eat, plus, they are delightfully fun to paint! Especially when I can acquire one from an orchard with the stem and leaves attached!  With so many varieties to choose from, there continues to be a number of color possibilities to explore in painting them. Looking at these paintings together here, has just given me an idea for another apple painting!
