An Apple a Day

Click to Buy (Oil 6x6 in)
I love a daily apple with a little salt on the tart ones.  But to be honest I prefer peanut butter.  This painting is on an acrylic panel that I sanded down and then applied a couple of coats of gesso.  I did some research and found others using the acrylic with out problems.  I did a few test panels and found out it was very difficult to scratch off the gesso and water didn't faze it after the gesso was dry.  I believe these panels are better than masonite.  When I had my frame shop I framed several older oil paintings from the Twenties and Thirties and always had to be careful of paint that would flake off especially on the edges.
