Apples, orchards, apple industries and products are ever present in my environment. Drawing and painting apples may be a subject I will pursue in the future.

This work was inspired by Van Gogh's painting of Almond Blossoms. As I looked up into the apple tree to take the photo, sunlight, sky and clouds shined trough the spaces between the branches. The blues of the sky played in the shadows of the still greenish Pink Lady apples in late August.
