Pink Ladies





This kind of apple is a very sweet, crisp beauty, with firm, pinkish toned flesh. I bought a few the other day, and decided they should be painted as well as eaten!

If you would like to purchase this painting, or commission something similar, please e-mail me: jogiesbrecht@gmail.com

Joanne,
They look fresh to me! Nice! I left a comment about approaching galleries under the wrong coffe cup painting. I hope you saw that!

Thanks, Jean - I appreciate the advice. I'll let you know how it goes when I get everything together. Have a great Easter long weekend!

Joanne,
You may want to check out the like on my blog for the colorist...he has a "one sheet" format he sends out to perspective galleries. I just added this link. Also, the link to Artist Emerging helped me a lot.

I am one of those people that advertisers dream of...put a picture of a hamburger up and I suddenly feel in the mood for Burger King. Show me coffee cups and I'm scrounging for spare change to walk to Starbucks and get a latte. Show me Pink Ladies, and I am positively drooling. Can you please paint a picture of someone exercising next so that "we", the easily influenced, can do something to counter all the eating you are inducing "us" to do??

Hi Kim,

You are so funny! You could stand to eat a little more! I am happy that you like the painting. Can't guarantee that you won't see more food, though. Whatever strikes me as paintable is fair game. "Talk" to you next time you visit.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for all the great advice! I appreciate your help and the expertise that you have to guide me in this adventure. I will be sure to check out the links you have told me about.

I love the clean palette you've used... you've captured the waxy luminosity so easily. I also love the creamy tones of the flesh.

So delicious! :)

Hi Michelle,

Your comments always encourage me! I can hardly wait to see your Koi Fish painting finished and up on your site. It is so spectacular! Have a wonderful Easter.

I love Pink Ladies, Galas and Fujis. Great painting!

Hi Barrie,

Thanks for coming by and leaving your comment. Your new book sounds very exciting! Did you have input into the design of the jacket as well? I wish you great success as it hits the bookstores soon! Hope to "see" you again soon.
