Commission: Cortland apples (on reclaimed wood)

"Cortland apples (on reclaimed wood)" Oil on masonite, 7-1/2 x 10 inches
(Click on image for larger view)

During last month I've been busy with some new commissioned works. Three more still life to come during the summer.

(To avoid any confusion: " ...(on reclaimed wood)"

is part of the title. I never use reclaimed material as painting boards, only as subjects in the compositions. As specified at the bottom of the image, this oil is actually painted on masonite(new), sealed with shellac and prepared with 5 lightly sanded coats of gesso , a very traditional method).

Thanks for your visit,
have a great weekend!
