Slice of Life… Jan Lackey


This is a slice of my life. The weather is warming and the sun is shining outside. I would almost like to go out if it wasn’t for the mud. I took a walk around my garden. It’s such a mess. The soil is still frozen. Inside, I’m working at my dining table on another painting. I still have winter evergreens on my window sills. I need to take them outside but not today. Painting apples seem like such a natural subject for Bohemia. Apple trees are everywhere in the countryside. The dark background focuses your eye on the apples, while the green clothe on the table compliments the red fruit.
