Above It All

Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"Above It All"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"While sitting and sketching outside a Ohio State campus cafe,
I noticed a man working on a ladder 3.5 stories high above the
street walkers.
It brought back memories of myself many years ago. It is hard for
me to believe now, that I once painted campus sorority houses that
were often 3 stories high. Now I think I must have been absolutely
insane."

"Wired for Sound"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"Today's painting is a young man with headphones walking past
"Larry's Bar & Grill". A bit of nostalgia for you. This is
probably the oldest hang out near the Ohio State Campus.
I remember going here in the late 60's. It was the place for
artists and cool hippies to sit and talk politics, play chess
and of course have a cold beer."

Self Portrait

"Self Portrait"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"Yep, a self portrait. Actually,I haven't done a self portrait since
the early 70's. So,this is me standing at a local coffee shop. Do we
want to get philosophical about it? Oh, why not. In this world today,
talking to people around the world through the internet, making friends
in distant places and all the time never actually seeing the real person...
I create my paintings, put them online and I say to myself, it is the
work that really matters."

oil on canvas - 6"x6"
contemporary figurative

"The other day, around lunchtime, I noticed this young man who
worked in the red & white (a fast food place)standing outside
taking a break. The place seemed almost deserted except for him.
It was a painting waiting to happen. The stark red & white building,
a beautiful blue sky with one dark figure in a red hat."

"Today's piece is one of many scenes I see every day on the
street near the Ohio State Campus. I am sure you have you
noticed that nearly everyone you see walking are also talking
on their cell phones. It has become such a part of everyday
life that it is almost rare to see someone without it. "
