Apple - WIP

Here it is hanging on the garage door!  If this isn't an incentive to unbury my design wall I don't know what is!

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.
