Atalanta's apples

kali challenged me to do "something inspired by Greek mythology this week, something fanciful or symbolic." At first I thought of the Golden Apple of Discord, then I thought of Midas, and then I remembered a mythology story the boys used to listen to about Atalanta, the Goddess of Running, Hippomenes, and the three golden apples. So, three it was. Sprayed them with a gold food spray, took them outside, immediately dropped them in the snow, and the paint started to come off. So, quick! Had to get that golden hour sunlight.
kali @kali66 ... My boys loved the story of Atalanta and her footrace with Hippomenes. Now I have to go find that mythology recording.
