Fresh Picked Apples,still life,oil on canvas,6x6,price$200

A call came out to local artist to do a painting and donate the painting for the local school art enrichment program. I'm all for art in the schools. The 6x6 canvas are free from our local Dakota Art Store. I put a price on this painting on line. If it sells the money will go to our art program. The Paintings will hang on November 3rd or 7th. There will be many, many artist 6x6 paintings on the wall. I will post a photo of the show for all to see. This painting is of the apples that I picked this weekend from our trees. This is a great year for apple in Washington State. I have 3 boxes full and still some on the tree.
