Getting into Pollock



Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"Getting into Pollock"
art museum series
oil on canvas - sold
8"x8"

I had a lot of fun doing this one; doing an "action" painting like Pollock, only in a very small scale.
Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956) was an influential American painter and a major force in the abstract expressionist movement.

Pink Roses

Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"Pink Roses" 
oil on canvas - 9"x 12"
Collectible Appletree Hollow Series

This is Flora Millicent Shepard, born and raised in Appletree Hollow.
From the time she was very young she loved flowers and seemed to possess the
ultimate "green thumb". She would sneak into Albert Findhome's garden
and prune his shrubbery into animal shapes.
It wasn't until she received first prize at the yearly village festival with an extraordinarily
large stemmed pink rose, that she was given the title of : "ROSEY FLORA" and became
the local floral expert. At the young age of 21 she established the first scientific lab in floral
gene splicing that created some of the most amazing species of roses that we have today.

Waiting for Santa?


















Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"Mopsy Twins" - original painting is sold
Appletree Hollow Series
Millie and Billie Roundbottom: The adopted twins of Fred and Anna Roundbottom. Millie and Billie's parents had already passed away in a farming accident when this photo was taken in 1893.Fred and Anna, prominent residents in the community, were without children so they were happy to accept the little ones.
They were very good parents who promoted the Santa tradition in their home. This photo was titled, "Millie and Billie waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve". My question is this: If they are waiting for Santa, why didn't Fred and Anna tell them that he wouldn't be coming down a chimney with a blazing fire?
p.s. but don't have a fire in the fireplace on Christmas Eve!

Read of the discovery of Appletree Hollow.

Kitten on Xmas Eve























Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"Wee Willie Winkie on Xmas Eve"
oil on canvas - 6"x8" - sold
animal art

My version of Wee Willie Winkie with his Teddy on Xmas eve.

Did you know the origin of the Wee Willie Winkie?
The explanation of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was to teach children to associate every day tasks with their own lives. Before the days of the wireless, television and the Internet great reliance was put upon the Town Crier to pass on the latest news and information. 'Wee Willie Winkie' was the children's version of the Town Crier! The author of the poem was William Miller (1810 - 1872) and the first publication date of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was in 1841.
