Hand-picked Red and Green Apple with a Light Background

The Southern Poverty Law Center's article Speak Up: Responding to Everyday Bigotry is worth a read, and it's organized in a very helpful way.

With this painting, I am thinking about the "white" background in the John Johnston Still Life from 1810 that I studied in 2015 at the "Audubon to Warhol: The Art of American Still Life" exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. If you're interested, I found a poor quality image of Johnston's still life online here.
