Learning to draw and paint was a great lesson in perseverance and dedication.
I wanted to start a series of paintings that would show a perspective that isn’t often talked about. I wanted to show the beauty in all of the fruits and vegetables from our earth, from their roots to their growing time to their harvest time. I wanted to show the attention and love given by those who grow them, those who package them, those who prepare them for us as food. I am not an expert at painting or drawing still-life artwork, but it turns out that there is no better way to practice than just looking at your classic bounty of fruits and vegetables!
