Heirloom Apples {Bountiful Observations no. 38} SOLD

Heirloom Apples

{8" x 8" (20.3 x 20.3 cm) – oil on canvas panel}


I am getting a late start this week, running behind a bit, and trying to catch my breadth after a VERY busy weekend. Saturday's Art on the Avenue arts festival was a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone who came out and introduced themselves, it was fun getting to meet everyone in person.

Another fun aspect of the arts festival is that this painting of the apples was purchased by a nice couple first thing in the morning. I hope they enjoy owning it. These apples were picked at River Farm, they have an orchard of heirloom apples (the species has not been identified) of beautiful and tasty apples that make great cider and applesauce. Naomi and I dropped by one sunny morning and brought home about 10 apples, so far they have not made it into the kitchen because they are too lovely and I want to capture the simple beauty of these not quite perfect apples...

{14" x 14" (35.6 x 35.6 cm) with frame}


This is a painting from my Bountiful Observations series, with 25% of the net proceeds of each sale being donated to the American Horticultural Society.

This is gorgeous, Liz. I, too, have been inspired by locally farmed autumn produce this year. Congratulations on your success at the art festival. I know a ton of work went into your beautiful display!

Beautiful composition and texture. You can feel the gloss on the surface of these old variety of apples.
