Oil painting The Apple Tree by LINDA CLARK

The Apple Tree

The Apple Tree, by Linda W Clark is an oil painting on cotton canvas measuring 8 x 10 inches.  It was completed in July of 2015 with Giclee prints following.

Often as I paint I enjoy listening to music from eras past.  Many times I have heard the song, Don’t Sit under the Apple Tree, by The Andrews Sisters and imagined what it was like to have lived back in the time period before and during World War II.  There were some big changes for women that came about during that time.  It was the beginning, for many women, of leaving their homes to join the workforce while their husbands and fathers went off to war It was also the beginning for some to join the armed forces, leaving their family and loved ones behind, to serve their country, as well.
