Fall was just beginning and apples abounded. Not able to resist the challenge and submitted the following list, partly inspired by one of my favorite books, The Orchard by Adele Crockett Robertson and also by my own grandmother's experiences growing up in the Great Depression:
Apples, Great Depression, beautiful young woman, basket, survival, locket, blue
She chose my words! I had the pleasure of watching the progression, from beginning to end. Here is the beautiful finished painting. The original is currently available for purchase on ebay if you'd like to place a bid. (One third of the total selling price will be donated to the SOS Children's Villages Canada. Bidding ends December 2nd.)
I love Plett's artwork. Whimsical and unusual are a good words to describe many of her works. Plus, Plett is also a writer and a children's book fan and recently illustrated a series of children's books. I'm thrilled that I had the chance to collaborate in such a fun and interesting project and look forward to following Plett as she continues to create!
Just out of curiosity, what words would you select if asked to help inspire a painting?
