“Newton's Apple" --- Sold

Last Saturday I went to Marble Falls, TX. The Riverbend Fine Art Gallery was hosting the reception of a 3-man show of Rusty Jones, Bob Rohm, and me. All three of us did demos that day. This is my demo painting. Since I am working on leaves, I included some of them in my setup. I placed a red apple right under the leaves, and it feels like the apple has fallen right off the branch. It reminds me the story that Isaac Newton discovered the gravity because an apple fell on his head. So I named the painting: Newton's Apple.

This 3-man show is a new milestone to me. This is the first time I have shown relatively many paintings with a small group of artists. I met quite a few new friends and really had a lot fun at this beautiful Texas Hill Country town. I want to thank Marta Stafford for organizing this event. I want to thank all my collectors for their support.
