I love this area of our town, called German Village.
Wonderful little brick homes with many old brick streets,
quaint shops, great food and always a pleasant place to sit for awhile.

The Eyes Have It

"The Eyes Have It"
oil on canvas - 8"x8"
contemporary figurative

"I did this one larger, 8x8", to be able to develop the painting
a bit more.
This is a mural on a building in our art district they call the
Short North. It is obviously a quirky take of the famous
"American Gothic". I used to have a gallery just across the
street from this building. I thought it would be fun to use it
for a different idea."

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."
