Man with Hot Pretzel cart

Copyright © 2009 Linda Apple

"Hot Pretzels"- sold
oil on canvas - 8"x10"

One of our familiar scenes in the city are the food carts
with one of my favorite items - Hot Pretzels!
Caught this young guy pulling his cart to his special corner
to begin his work day.
Many, many years ago I attempted this job. All I remember is that
it was a LOT harder than it looks and.....I didn't last very long :)

Two Tricycles


Copyright © 2009 Linda Apple
"Touching Trikes"
oil on canvas
Large - 20"x30"

This large painting was a commission from a previous
client who wanted a painting with red & blue old style
tricycles w/shadows. This one was really fun but needed
a bit of research. I found out that it is not as easy
to find the old metal trikes anymore........

Family Day - Sitting on a Bench

Copyright © 2009 Linda Apple
"Family Day"
oil canvas - 8"x10 "

Last month I went to the yearly Greek Festival which is always fun
and of course, great FOOD! I noticed a young service guy sitting with
his family and thought it was a touching scene but I was also drawn
to the way they were sitting and their interesting shadows.

Blue Sky Factory Buildings


Copyright © 2009 Linda Apple
"Factory Blues"
8"x8"-oil on canvas

I found these buildings on the south edge of town. We often
see large factories that have either closed down or view
them as an ugly blotch but on this day the light was shining
through a beautiful blue sky and these big old structures
seemed to take on a life of their own and reveal a hidden beauty.

Woman in Black - art museum

Copyright © 2009 Linda Apple
"Bold in Black"
oil on canvas - 8"x10 "-sold
Art Museum Series
A couple weeks ago on one of my visits to the museum,
I was drawn to an older woman visitor who made
a strong impression on my artistic eye. Dressed in a
flowing black coat she made a bold expressive statement
similar to the large abstract expressionistic paintings
of artist Franz Kline.
