Apples, Green Plate (6"square)

My studio time today was sandwiched between two obligations, so I had to get right to it and get finished fast. I often find that is a good situation, because I have to focus. Many times I come to a point where things are not going as I had hoped and I say to myself, ok, I've lost this one, so I'll just go forward and see what I can get out of it anyway. This very often turns out all right and it did today. I was trying to keep my edges very soft, not by going back over them and fixing them, but by getting them that way with the first stroke. And I like the abstract quality and the density of the color. And the brown is a good brown! Also, I like the scale of the piece, so small but compact and energized. I feel like I have made good progress by doing the last 185 paintings.
