Illustration Friday: Flavor

Gosh, it was hard to choose for this one-- I've done so many works with that lurking somewhere in the subtext. For one thing, I often chose colors to go together by how they taste (not literally, but visually, I experience colors are having a visual taste)...weird, huh? But I opted for this set of three that have a very obvious relationship to the topic of flavor.

Yum!!!! They look juicy too! It isn't weird to experience colors as having a visual taste - just artistic :)

This is an especially lovely series. I really like the feeling of abstarction your flat approach achieves while retaining the identity of the objects. I think my favorite is thebottom...the greens are very pretty and seem to cary throughout the composition. Great job!

Beautiful...very inspiring. You are making me hungry for a nice juicy melon.

The first thing I said when I saw this was, "I would actually like this framed hanging in my kitchen!" That's a compliment!

Julie Oakley said...

I love these - amazing how they have an abstract feel with those detailed patterns and yet convey all the juiciness of the melons
