More from the produce counter

Swiss Chard, watercolor 38 x 28 cm
When my husband saw me taking a bunch of Swiss chard at the store, he said "You are buying this to paint it, aren't you?" Yes, he guessed right. I had to complete the series of interesting edible leaves. As a bonus we did end up with a tasty soup.

Pineapple, watercolor 38 x 28 cm
And now everybody knows what's for desert tonight...

Ooohh, Blaga, your work is so beautiful. (*In Australian English, an adjective "beautiful" means delicious in context of meals, do ye kne?) I'd like to be your guest.
Best wishes, Sadami

Wonderful still life, the colors of the first are perfect but my preference goes to the pineapple. Ciao Blaga.

Blaga said...

Thank you, Sadami! So, in Australian you'd say "beautiful pasta" Good to know these flavours of the language :)

Thank you, Mercedes! I wasn't that Swiss Chard and Beets are related, but learned that since.

Thank you, Jane! I really enjoyed doing the pineapple!

Thank you, Catharina! It was fun painting the pineapple and keeping it loose in spite of the geometric pattern of its texture

Thank you, Floriana! I find that I cannot stay on one subject for a long time. I feel the need to switch. I can't help it. Maybe its good, in terms of skills development.

Thank you, Rita! always good when things have multiple functions - models and food :)

Thank you, Jane!

Thank you, Tito! Everybody leans towards the pineapple - apparently it wins :)
