"I have scores of apple trees in the fields that surround my home. The variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and flavors are remarkable. I typically hand-pick and photograph dozens of these miniature masterpieces...entirely beautiful, even with small blotches and blemishes. They are free from the need to be known, inherently content with being authentic and without recognition. I would like my paintings to be like the apples: heedless of renown, content to be beautiful…despite imperfections…and truthful."
Koo Schadler, "Two Roses and a Petal, from Above,"
