"Mango", 10"x10", oil on canvas
This painting is informed by a ripened mango. It was inspired by a variety of fruits used in Jewish feasts. While some parts of the painting are painted uniformly flat, other areas are painted with thick impasto paint. The colors of the abstacted areas are inspired by the colors of a mango while the shape of the abstracted line area are several tracings of a halved mango. The canvas is a gallery wrapped style, on a 1.5" deep hand-made stretcher frame. My painting was created in 2017.
