"your Influence are your roots, if they are bad, then most likely your seeds will be bad as well."
a quote i made up to go with the painting, its about an apple tree that so happens to be growing in a cemetery that's grounds has been littered with just about every thing bad, needles, drugs, bottles, bones and TV's, all of these in which the tree's roots have grown into that has spoiled it's fruit, making them black with a shade of red. skull apples.
this painting has pretty much boosted my confidence in painting more, im pretty impressed with the sky and how well the black contrast of the tree and foreground fits in.
painted on a fairly large white canvas, with black/white and red acrylic paint . total time to complete, 7 hours 23 minutes, in 2 sessions.
forgive me for the poor quality in the camera, had to use my i-phone XP
