I've been in a kind of funk (painting wise) for a good part of this week. Painting this felt like breathing a little easier...

I loooove this.

I wish I knew enough to say things about light and texture and composition. I don't know enough to say anything about light or texture or composition. Well, I could say something about light or texture or composition but you'd quickly realize I'm full of crap.

So I will say this, with all the artistic authority I can muster: This? Is rad.

Hi Jason, I found your blog somehow and love your work! It's very inspirational to me. I hope you don't mind, but I've tagged you on my blog.

Boo:
Thank you. Your comment has me thinking about light, texture and composition...

Pablo:
Thanks for stopping by! Thank you for the tag. I will have to think hard about who to tag...

Expect a post later this week...

Jason, this is really a refreshing, uplifting painting. Those apples just sing. I love how you handled the reflections in the ceramic plate! In other words, yes, this IS rad. :)

P.S. Dude! Is this not the THIRD time you've been tagged? You must be about the most popular guy in the blogosphere!

Well done man... nice shininess and reflectiveness, with the bluish light.
This looks fast - how long did it take?

Kathy:
Thanks! :)
I think a lot of people get multiple tags, and probably what this means is that a new round will sweep everyone... or it'll subside.

Personally, I kinda like the tagging thin, because it helps to create many nodes of exposure for lots of folk-- and that's a good thing...

Dan:
Thanks for the comment! Let's see, it took about 20 years of various sorts of practice, and then about 2.5 to 3 hours to paint...

Gorgeous.

I really like how you show the difference in the colors of all three varieties.

An apple is not just an apple.

Beautiful work.

Tara,
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. The differences in color (and shape) was part of what attracted me to the wee beasties...
