A few years ago Lizzie planted an apple tree in the yard at The Rowley Gallery. She would never pick the apples too soon, but always waited patiently until they fell into her open palm. This year, since our tree-of-heaven has gone, the apple tree has come out of the shadows and been quicker to offer its fruits. They’re crisp and juicy with a flavour of melon and raw potato. But what they lack in taste they make up for in appearance and now Karen has captured all their beauty in this delicious watercolour.
