It feels so good to get back to painting after the drain of the holidays. I sprayed some retouch varnish on the landscape which was painted in November at Bechwith's. It smelled like frankincense. I drove up to Giant Eagle and bought 4 different apples: Roma, Aphrodisia, McIntosh, and Jonah Gold. I'm trying a new, (for me) way of painting the title directly on the niche.
