Pear with figs, no. 4, watercolor, originally uploaded by ahtravis.
I love painting the shapes of fruits and vegetables. The practice began as a standard fallback on that rainy or frigid day when I could not paint in watercolor outside. At first it was just practice, keeping in shape but no more. Now I am attracted to the shapes and colors with their unending combinations as if bites were on my tongue. My paintings strive to make their images as good as their taste!
you know i love what i think of still as your winter work, even though it goes on all year and now that you work with other mediums is not even the only thing you do in the studio!
