A Walk Through the Orchard

This was painted using a reference photo of my son and his girlfriend. They were walking through an apple orchard on an apple-picking excursion with friends. When I saw the photo which was snapped by her girlfriend, I knew it would make a wonderful painting. We truly love her and it was a joy to do the painting. I gave the painting to her for Christmas. I was so very touched when I saw it brought tears to her eyes when she saw it. She is a very special young woman to us and to my son. The term 'girlfriend' seems very inadequate. It is such a joy to bring happiness to others through my artwork. This is watercolor on 140 lb cold press paper.
