I love painting from the top view. I found that slicing up the fruits have very interesting textures. Especially grapefruits, oranges, lemons and avocados. Their symmetrical and circular shapes make interesting compositions.
This painting was done strictly using palette knife. I found that I can’t render so much but have to consider what color to use before actually applying it on the canvas.
These paintings of pumpkins were painted around 2013. Recently someone bought one of them. I had completed forgotten they were around and thought I had destroyed them.
This painting will be part of the upcoming Pence Gallery Exhibit in January 2019.
