"Quadruplets" --- SOLD
I've always been good at painting/drawing what I see, but it's really hard for me to make up anything, and so I envy people who paint abstract or cartoons or from memory. That said, I like to experiment with putting colors where they aren't really - like the little patch of blue in the bottom right corner of this one. There doesn't seem to be any rule for what those colors should be or how much or where, and so I rely on instinct...when I have it. Susan Ogilvie does this well - I never see her colors when I'm outside.
These apple slices reminded me of babies in a row. Having one myself (now 2 yrs-old) makes me think we should give the people with 2 or more at a time a medal...a really big one. Wow.
