old man with still life

Old man with still life
oil on canvas, 9x12 inches

It started as a still life study of an apple plus dried squid and fish about 5 months ago.
It got parked for a long time.
Then i completely lost interest on it.
So i decided to paint over the canvas with a different picture.
My initial plan was to completely cover the still life with that old sheepherder's image.
But in the middle of the process, the apple showing through made a cool effect.
So i left some significant parts of the apple and dried sea foods showing.

A dead still life canvas reincarnated as a double exposed effect painting.
