how to paint an apple...by GARDEGA

In order to be an artist one must be able to paint an apple amidst rapine and pillage (as the old saying goes) This means in the chaos and rush that is life one must take the time to sit down and paint a simple apple. A simple apple is a test of any artist..Dekooning could never paint a true apple, nor Pollock, nor half the modernistos. Velasquez could paint an apple to rival gods own and the dutch masters could do this as well. It is important to step back from the madness of art and to hang an apple by a string and paint it. This is good for the art soul and it is like an athlete doing push ups. The apple tempted Adam and the apple will always be around right to the very end of man...
