WIP - Apple

WIP - Apple
40x68 inches
Fabric Paint, Shiva Paintsticks, on Cotton

Taking opinions! I'm not happy with the background. At this point I think I will finish the apple tonight, which means I need to go to the store and audition apples again, and then let it air cure. Once it's cured in a few days, shiva paintstiks, I'd press it then wash it then stitch it???

I'm still not certain, I've been working on this piece of almost a year now.

Love the redo...much better than the initial trial...much more lively and interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing the quilting on it. I have my own ideas, but I don't want to influence you!

Even with the re-do, I feel that the very, very strong background is overwhelming the more subtle apple. Can the background be toned down any further?
