Images of Food











The lemon is just one example of countless other fruits and vegetables whose natural shapes and colors have inspired artists, particularly painters of still life. In addition to their ornamental beauty, they have been used throughout art history as symbols for many things. Their meaning changing, depending on the culture as well as, whether or not their forms had been altered by a bite or by halving with a knife. All this, and sustenance too, make it worthy of iconography. The paintings in this portfolio have been done with oils and acrylics on plastered and non plastered wood and masonite panels.

All of the paintings in this portfolio as well as, all the other portfolios on this site are for sale. Click on image info under each painting for pricing and other information.  Please feel free to contact me with any additional inquiries.
