I continue to do portraits based on images people send me and I also like to paint my food. Nothing new here in subject matter except that I’m experimenting with frames within frames.
The portrait is painted with oil on grey gesso on a cream background on a 14″x18″ wood panel.
Snack is painted with oil on a turquoise background on a white 12″x 12″ wood panel.
Neither of these paintings has anything to do with the pandemic. The portrait of my friend happened because of his losing over a hundred pounds, resulting in the total transformation of his appearance and especially his face. The avocado and beet hummus on a rye-crisp has no deeper meaning than my liking of that particular colour combination and, of course, enjoying the taste. The turquoise table was a bonus. It made a good background, which I often need help with.
