This friendly little scene came from my Sister's farm this Summer when she invited us to pick peaches. It is the subject of my current class at Heartland Career Center in Wabash on Tuesday nights. After class tonight, I continued painting and this is as far as I got. I will continue to post the progress.
This painting may not be new to some of you… if you took my watercolor class on September 12 in Wabash, Indiana you painted a similar image. I was encouraged and humbled by the fine artists that came to learn from my teaching and this is the painting that I started that day. It has taken me awhile to finish it. Here it is.
"An apple in June is a perfect apple for June. It is the best that June can produce. But it is very different from the apple in October, which is a perfected apple. Be patient."
And so my fellow-artists, hear me….Be patient; good art takes time!
