Daily paintings: Raiding the kitchen


Nectarines [SOLD]

This week I have been finding inspiration in the produce I bring home from the market. I love the vibrant colors of fruits and veggies, which make me want to paint with colors straight out of the tube.


Tomatoes on the vine [SOLD]

These are all 15 x 15 cm (about 6 x 6 in), oil on canvas.


Red pepper

What are your favorite still life subjects?

    I like how you work with the colors, just amazing. I am painting through synesthesia which makes me see colors when I hear names and numbers. These colors I transform in paintings. Colors are my life.

    Love the veggie paintings. I actually have a thing for bananas. They are my go-to choice for a simple still life. If you go to my blog, scroll down the righthand sidebar to the “search” field & type in “banana.” You’ll see ;-)

    Love looking at your work.

    @Artist – thanks! I love the colors of fresh fruit and veggies. So inspiring. Off to check out your blog now!

    @Henniemavis – I bought a big bunch of bananas the other day – maybe they should serve as today’s victims, er, subjects.
