"Over There"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas

It's really fun to create paintings within paintings.
As you already know, I love to play off of puns,cliches and
even add bit of humor. In this painting, I created a small
tribute to Georgia O'Keefe,in order to propose a question to
the viewer.

Friends - 30" x 72" - commission figurative art

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple

oil on gallery wrapped canvas
30"x 72"

Yes, look again at the size!
This is a commissioned painting that I just completed this past week.
It was made to fit over a fireplace mantle. She wanted two women at the
art museum and if I could include some sculpture and a view of the sky
through the trees. This was the result.

It fit perfectly and she loved it and said that it felt like it had always been there.
The funny thing for me was that after it was hung and we sat back to view
it...... I realized that the window light source in the house was coming
in from the right, the same as in the painting. So it was a bit surreal,
that it looked like the light coming in was creating the shading
in the painting. Really fun!

"Lazy Days"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas
9"x12" - sold

What an ending to a hot summer~
I have heard that a visit to the beach, meeting up with friends and
catching a few Zzzzzzzz's can really give one a different view on life!

I do large paintings for commissions and galleries. Sometimes they are
new renditions of small works. If you are interested in a larger
painting, don't hesitate to ask about it!
