"Georgia Grown"

12 x 6-3/4
oil on masonite
sold


Tons of fun with this new piece - I don't do many still-lifes but thoroughly enjoy them. A keen observation from my boyfriend, speaking up that this pile of vegetables would make a good painting. Great vivid, bold color - a perfect subject for using oils. The arrangement includes Georgia grown vegetables I picked up at a local produce stand - Vidalia onions, red tomatoes and Silver Queen corn. This new painting will be included in the Contemporary Realism show at 16 Patton opening June 13th.

Oh I love it love it love it. I love your still lifes, and remember a cheesecake you painted over a year ago that I just missed out on via eBay at the last minute and was so sad. I also remember an older one you did of strawberries close up. You've got it, girl. This is up there will my all-time favorites of yours. You can paint food like no other. Thiebaud? Bah. Jurick!
