I have a new-found love.
Kind of like a crush. Actually no, more like a squash!
And it began in our new Morrison superstore amongst the vast array of freshly spritzed vegetables.
No it wasn’t some young handsome retail assistant but the vegetables themselves!
I love the range of patterns and colours and all the inspiration that it brings for design opportunities and painted images. Then you can cook and eat it!
The mushroom section has about 10-15 varieties – who knew mushrooms were so interesting. I love photographing them because they look like mini landscapes from the moon under a macro lens.
Or a secret fairy kingdom.
One particular mushroom was so smelly that the only way I could paint it was like this…
I was inspired by vintage educational posters to paint something with a botanical look to it.
Sorry about all the watermarking of images but someone recently used a painted design of mine to jolly up their leaflet and although they told me they done it, they didn’t respond to my heavy hint that I made my living as an artist! So it has made me resolve to avoid it happening where possible. Sad really but that’s the down side of t’internet I suppose.
