Mes Deux Macs....My Two Macs

11x 14, oil/canvas
I had to give this painting its title in French because of the double entente.  In France, the word Mac is slang for guy or boyfriend.  In Quebec the term is chum. The rest is up to you...

Seriously though, sometimes its a good idea to go back to the basics and paint something which is deceivingly simple, like a couple of apples.  It can be a humbling experience because they are always a challenge.  Here is a detail:

When I was a kid, macs were my favorite apples, in fact they were the only apples I would eat.  When my daughter was little, she only ate delicious apples.  I wonder where she got that from!
