Wolf River Apple

"Wolf River Apple"
8" x 10"
Oil on canvas panel 
"It's enough for a strudel," said my host as I chose a Wolf River Apple from the basket sitting on his veranda.  "I sniffed the dimple where the stem would be.  "It's a cooking apple," he said, "don't bite into it.  Indigenous to here," he added, meaning Wisconsin. "Take another and you can make a pie."  I did. 

I knew I'd be in Wisconsin over the weekend, and would bring back something to paint. This apple was it. I painted the background on Friday afternoon and the apple last night.  Amazingly, it's 16" in circumference, like a slow pitch softball.

This painting will be listed with, and for purchase through my gallery on a Dailypaintworks Auction.
