Health Food-Still Life

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to The Paint it Before You Eat it Challenge at DPW posted by Carol Marine. Carol challenged us to paint colorful Valentine treats.

Yeah...yeah...I know my title for this piece is "Health Food"...which normally means something like celery or an apple. But this is mental health food! Happy, happy...yum, yums!

I painted this over a coat of black gesso! One of my favorite tactics...A fun way to paint!

Genesis 1:29 "And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food."
