I was commissioned to create this painting as a surprise birthday gift.
It’s inspired by photos I took while picking apples on the most beautiful autumn afternoon.
If you haven’t been to Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock, NC it is worth the trip for the panoramic mountain views.

What a great painting! I was here once with my family and your painting brings back fond memories.
Thanks, Michael. I have great memories there with my family too! 🙂
I was at the birthday party, and got to see this painting in person. It’s so beautiful! Love it.
Wasn’t that a great surprise! I love being in on birthday secrets. 🙂
