THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The bowl in the Still Life with Fruits painting is nearly overflowing with reddish green apples which are coming into their full colors. The apple, a symbol of knowledge but also a symbol of temptation, shows a sort of ascent from adolescence into adulthood and the trials that are faced along the way. The single lemon off to the side of the bowl showcases a sense of purification and friendship, but it can also symbolize the bitterness one might feel when indulging too much in their desires and not keeping an eye on the implications of one's actions while they mature.
