At The Studio
My studio is a very special private space
- I've had a wonderful year working in my studio creating The Forgotten Seeds.
- I've eaten a lot of seeds and fruit !
- Do you know there are more than 100 seeds in every blueberry and that cherimoya seeds are toxic.
- I didn't know that!
- I hope with this new series you will take the time to look within at the world you live in.
All my paintings are glazed in thin layers, so I work on several paintings a day. When I started this series my first subjects were apples. I would come in to the studio in the morning with a basket of apples. After that I started with grapes and peppers.
Then I realized that Vermont was not the place to buy tropical fruits.With that realization I headed to Ometepe Island in Nicaragua . I've been traveling there for years teaching art to children and painting on the ipad.
Now I go there to study tropical fruits and photograph their seeds.
Just blocking in color and starting basic composition
Cleaned The Studio
Very rare event
Everytime I started a new painting the canvases got larger
