Red and Delicious

A Red Delicious Apple, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2012
Private collection, McLean, Virginia

To celebrate the last day of the Mayan calendar, I decided to carve out a study of a subject I rarely explore, the rakish and angular red delicious apple. While yellow delicious, granny smith and royal gala tend to be nothing but pleasant curves and gentle colors, the red delicious apple has corners and angles, and a rich deep glossy red finish that seems more at home on a laquered piano than a simple piece of fruit.
