Daily painting: dangerous veggies

Here in Germany we are in the middle of a mysterious outbreak of scary mutant killer E.coli infections. Even though it has been more than a month since it started, no culprit has been identified, although we’re being told to cook all vegetables before eating them. Needless to say, all of this has kind of put a damper on the delight I usually feel when perusing the farmers market for some beautiful new vegetable to paint (and then eat). Suddenly having a head of broccoli in my studio feels about as unsanitary as setting up a still life featuring a raw chicken breast.

So, um, expect to see some completely different subject matter popping up real soon!

    Your broccoli is beautiful Jul! I know what you mean about the vegetables, it is amazing how our minds work. I did some tomato photography yesterday with old produce and then I scrubbed the house like a maniac!!

    @J. Aerts – Thanks!

    @TJ – I can’t wait until this is over and we can love veggies with abandon again. :)
