Antique Clothes Dryer - wooden clothes pins

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple
"Clothes Dryer"
oil on deep canvas - 6"x8" - sold

Years go by and some things do become, more or less,obsolete.
My grandma always used these as her clothes dryer but today
its rare to even find these original round wooden objects.
I look at them and think about the person that came up with
this amazing little item. They really are unique in their design
and were certainly used by the millions!

"Happy Days"
oil on 1.5 " deep canvas - 6"x6"- sold

I might have been a little too excited to think of spring! Although
the first day of spring arrived 3 days came in with winter
cold and gray skies. I guess there are some who enjoy the winter and
are sad to see it go.

Complimentary Colors - Flowers

"Complimentary Flowers" - sold
oil on 1.5 " deep canvas - 6"x6"

A great study in complimentary colors. In the art world,these colors,
when placed next to each other, make each other appear brighter.
The use of complementary colors is an important aspect of
aesthetically pleasing art. So, I hope this one pleases YOU! :)

After months of gray winter, I have certainly been
enjoying my bundle of spring flowers that I got at the store.
I am looking forward to seeing these beauties popping up outside.
Besides, it has been such a very long time since I painted flowers that
I forgot how fun they are! Hope you are enjoying them too!

CBS Sunday Morning Sun - women artists

  Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple
"Women Artists"

oil on 1.5" deep canvas

I am sure this will ring a bell with you if you are a fan,like I am,
of the CBS Sunday morning Many of the sun images that are
shown for the different segments are sent in by viewers. I decided to
participate with a group of fellow artists to create one. They will
be sent to the program in hopes that they will choose one to air on
the show.
This is my sun created as a tribute to all the amazing women artists
around the world.Since the brush is one of our most important tools
and I go through a LOT of them.......
they definitely make my rays of sunshine!

Tools of the Trade - artist paint brushes

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple

"Tools of the Trade" - sold
oil on 1.5" deep canvas

After painting for over 40 years, I have purchased more
of these than I would ever like to think about. I still
have some brushes that are at least 20+ years that have
become old friends.
I can always seem to find a use for them,even when they
are worn out. I get very attached to them and unless
they are completely fallen into pieces,which is rare,
I never seem to throw them out.
