(This post contains 9 images.)I enjoy still-life art, usually the type with food and crockery painted in oils. However, this series of still-life focuses on the details of the food. There are nine small canvasses painted in acrylic. When all nine are hung neatly together they look great in a kitchen or dining area, even printed as pillows for a kitchen nook.
I am not a fan of acrylic paint, but I do try to use all mediums. The most challenging issue of all the paintings was getting the light just right for the particular textures.
I like the idea of the carrots lying in the soil, just plucked from the earth!
The layers and textures of the onion skin took time to accomplish. I love the earthy colours in this painting.
I feel that the avocado is the most successful of all the vegetable art. I was satisfied with the outcome of the thick, green skin.
The swiss chard has taken on an abstract look here. The red veins contrast well with the greens.
A wide range of Prints are available.
