Adam Bites The Apple


3.5 x 4 inches, watercolor and gouache, 2008.
Adam in the Garden of Eden about to take a chunk out of the apple that Eve has given him, the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, which had been forbidden to them. Once tasted they became aware of good and evil, and innocence was lost. Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden.

Oh, I love that. What kind of apple? Gala? Fuji? Couldn't possibly be a Granny Smith.

There is Nothing you cannot paint beautifully, Mark. Even teeth! I find them difficult, but you make everything look easy! Wonderful!
