Runaway Raspberries

2013 Acrylic on Canvas 20 x 20cm

One of six (Seed Series I – Fruit) for Minutiae Exhibition, Rosebed Gallery, Eudlo

Both red and sweet yellow berries came from the orchard – the red ones much larger with a slightly finer texture.  And they did try to run away when I tilted the bowl…

Lime ‘n’ Lemon

2013 Acrylic on Canvas 20 x 20cm

One of six (Seed Series I – Fruit) for the Minutiae Exhibition at Rosebed Gallery, Eudlo

Both the Lime and the Lemon were from the orchard.  The smaller Tahitian lime balanced nicely on the edge of the cut lemon for me.

2013 Acrylic on Canvas 20 x 20cm

One of six (Seed Series I – Fruit) for the Minutiae Exhibition at Rosebed Gallery, Eudlo

Prising the stone from the Avocado to show its size in the Montville Pottery bowl beside its creamy flesh gave the title to this painting.

One of six (Seed Series I – Fruit) for the Minutiae Exhibition at Rosebed Gallery, Eudlo

These were small passion-fruit I bought from the local fruit store.  I love the darkness of the wrinkled shell and rich colours of the fruit interior.

Giddy Grapes

One of six (Seed Series I – Fruit) for the Minutiae Exhibition at Rosebed Gallery, Eudlo

Trying to position the small bunch of grapes with the two cut grapes (to show the seeds) was fiddly and fun – that and the swirl in the Montville Pottery bowl gave me the name of this painting.

Banana Baby

2013 Acrylic on Canvas 20 x 20cm

Banana Baby is one of six (Seed Series I – Fruit) painted for Minutiae Exhibition Rosebed Gallery, Eudlo

As I placed the sliced banana from our orchard in the Montville Pottery bowl, I saw the little character and named this painting.  The vivid blue is a stunning background for this simple, ancient fruit.
