I thought I’d do another post about a month’s art production. I created ten food paintings for the series The Food We Eat. I love the bright colors. Most of the meals were at home but a few were while I was away. I really don’t eat out that often except when traveling. Guess we like our own cooking best.
For those who may be interested, I am using my own photos for the paintings. The pictures cover a span of over ten years so I have a good amount of inspiration. They are not projected on the canvas but are drawn free-hand. Dang, those circles and ellipses on the plates and glasses! What a challenge! And they’re all either 16 x 16 or 16 x 20 on canvas of 1.5 deep.
In addition to the food paintings, I did more tree drawings but they’re not shown here.
March will probably see some more food paintings but I think I’ll take a break. I have other ideas rolling around.
