==The Apple's Edge==

The Apple's Edge, prismacolor on paper, 15"x22" © 1988

Apples often come up in my paintings. I think there is the forbidden fruit aspect, but also the apple falling on Newton's head aspect-- when he equated the motion of the apple with the motion of the moon. Still, when I look at an apple, it seems so benign to me. Maybe there is the CÚzanne aspect with all that fruit shifting its weight. I find apples seem mysterious in art and myth, not so much when they are on the table.
