6 PM October Apple Tree

As I was leaving the studio a few weeks ago, I glanced across the yards to see the late-day light just spilling across the ground and slipping right under the neighbor's apple tree and illuminating the fruit on the ground.  The effect lasted only minutes...I ran back to get paints and a canvas; I waited a few days later for the effect to happen again in order to capture what I had missed. 

I was pleased with the painting but more so with the "serendipity" in which the moment was gifted to me.

Acrylic on canvas, 8 x 10, available.  Contact me or stop by the Holiday Artist Market, 16 W. Pomfret Street, Carlisle, to see this and 20 other paintings by the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters on display and for sale through the end on December.
