Crab Apples - Lin Frye

Crab Apples

I'm still playing with styles and methods -- and attempting a blend of loose and realistic. Though these may look like cherries, they are actually crab apples from one of the trees on our property. I've added a few more leaves than our tree currently has as the lack of rain has created an early leaf drop. But the tree is filled with many, many small apples, and they're almost ready for picking. My husband loves crab apple jelly, and if I can get to these before the birds and wildlife, I'll render them into several jars.

I caught some kind of stomach virus this weekend, so I haven't been as productive as I like to be on weekends. I'm feeling better, but sure wish I could have that 'time' back! LOL

School starts today and the college will be jumping ...

Take care and have a great day!

  1. And how gorgeous and edible they look Lin! Lovely spread!

  2. I truly admire your artistic style. I live in NC as well - just north of Greensboro. As you know, a beautiful state to paint.
