Apples, early fruit & vegetable series, 8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas, 2002. One spring, each of our kids picked a fruit tree to plant in our yard. This painting shows the first harvest of my son, Dillon's apple tree. We made a pie from these apples, YumYum! Even better was the taste when eaten fresh. I'd forgotten what a fresh-off-the-tree apple tasted like.
