Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"B" is for Bunny"
approx. 8.5 inches high
Weird Family Series

Most of you subscribe to my blog for the paintings but with Halloween around the corner, I thought you might enjoy another aspect of my work.
We all have a few "Skeletons" in the closet. Well, mine are not really skeletons but they are certainly within the strange and weird category.
This is Betty. She always comes around at this time of the year. She loves Halloween and bunnies! She is one of those people that is sooooo homely she's cute, I guess she kind of grows on you.

Betty is mixed media. She has a gourd body, striped cloth clothes. Aves apoxey head, arms, hands and "bunny slippers". Stick legs, sculpture mesh ears & gauze costume with waxed thread hair. She carries a wooden "B" building block.

Old Schwinn #2

Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"Old Schwinn #2"
oil on canvas - 8"x 8 "
Bicycle Series - sold

I have been busy with some commissions lately and thought you would enjoy seeing how this works. This was a re-creation of my first bicycle shadow paintings. The client wanted the same look and colors of the 6x8 but have it as an 8x8.
This was an old bicycle that sat beside my house without an owner.It had been abandoned for many months until one day I sat it in my front yard and did sketches of it. Next day it was gone.
