I do a lot of paintings related to food and wine, mainly the chefs at work or a sidewalk cafe venue. Then I thought about the food itself. I don't do very many still lifes but I thought it would be fun to do some with a little twist. So I dug around and came up with props for this one. Not really trying to do a super detailed painting but just an interesting composition. I really had fun doing something different, at least different for me.
So the next time you are having artist's block, go to the pantry and see what you can come up with. This one is 15x12 oil on gallery wrap canvas.
