Crabapples

Acrylic on gessoboard - 12 x 16 in - 2014

I was surprised when our crabapple and apple trees self-hybridized. Did you know that they are able do that? I didn’t until an orchard owner told me that it’s actually quite common. 

In any case, I became fascinated by the contrast in the sizes of the two different round, red fruits. I painted them using bold red acrylic with contrasting green leaves on gesso board.
