"Dragon Fruit", 10"x10", oil on canvas
This painting is informed by the mediterrian fruit, the dragon fruit. It was inspired by a variety of fruits used in Jewish feasts. While some parts of the painting are painted realistically, other areas are painted with thick impasto paint. The shape of the abstracted area is a tracing of a halved dragron fruit, while the colors of the tracing are informed by the fruit. The canvas is a gallery wrapped style, on a 1.5" deep hand-made stretcher frame. My painting was created in 2016.
