Tiny Apples - Winter Scene 24

Good thing I painted these tiny apples yesterday!  The apples grow on an ornamental apple tree outside my studio window and have provided me with color on otherwise grey days.  Yesterday we had snow again, and a flock of robins descended on our trees and this morning there is not an apple left.  The tree is bare!  We had great fun taking photos of the robins even though they were hard to catch sitting still for long.  I do have some reference photos and will attempt a watercolor using the birds as subjects.  A bright spot in a day of shoveling.

Day 24 in the 30 in 30 Challenge.  Check out the site for a look a some work by my fellow 30 in 30 painters.
