Locally Grown- Preston Co., WV- Limited Edition Print: Oh, to have one taste of these luscious apples in the full color, watercolor painting titled “Locally Grown” by Lotus MacDowell, Artworks WV! This is Contemporary Realism at its best; the greens and blues in the background applied in an abstract approach, contrasting with the detail in the fruit as it hangs in the sparkling sunlight. Here is a traditional subject with a decidedly modern twist. It makes a perfect splash of color for any room, and will enhance your personal decor.

According to Lotus, these apples were from a farm where buckwheat flour was made. It was in October:  the trees were still green and the fruit had vivid colors. The background was done using Saran Wrap crumpled on the paint to create the illusion of leaves without the detail, so the eye stays focused on the fruit. The Saran Wrap is removed when the paint is dry and it leaves a shiny finish on the surface.

Framing Ideas-

Wow- there are SOOO many ways to frame this limited edition piece! The soft teals in the background are lovely as a double mat- the top one can be a soft teal with a deeper teal liner mat underneath.  Or you can add a thin line of red as the liner color to draw out the magnificent colors in the apples. If you like a clean, contemporary look, try a crisp white mat to give it that "Gallery Look". No matter which way you go, picking the right tones in matboard and the right frame is crucial to a flawless look.  Artworks can frame your art for you!
