Produce Portraits

Small, quick, graphic studies in oil.

I don’t think the carrots fit in at all.

We are moving to the farm at the beginning of the summer and am very much looking forward to more of these, done right on the spot.

There is something so different about working from photos or memories vs. from life. None of these are from life but the treatment, bold strokes with lots of paint, cries out for still life set ups with fresh props.

  1. Love the richness of the paint; thick and gooey like ripe fruit. I think the carrots don’t work as well as the others maybe in part because of the (more) formal composition – all in a row – rather than bunchy; even under ground they are so irregular . . . but the colors are delicious. thanks!

  2. i love the carrots, X-ray vision. where are the worms?
