At a friends house recently we were served a spinach and pomegranate salad. It was yummy and something like this recipe here. As I ate I realized I’d never looked properly at a pomegranate. I also realized I didn’t know cut one open. So later, back at my studio, I found an instruction video here – then I got some pomegranates and began looking and painting. This is what I did:
“Oh Seeds!” – by Clancy – 5 x 7 inches – gouache and acrylic on board, framed.
“Shared Seeds” – by Clancy – 7 x 5 inches – gouache and acrylic on board, framed.
After the paintings were done (and the pomegranates added to my salad) I submitted the artwork for consideration to the gallery. They were accepted so I framed them and delivered them along with 10 other small pieces for a “Small Works Holiday Group Exhibit” at Caplan Art Designs the months of November and December. www.caplanartdesigns.com
All in all not a bad way to learn how to make a salad!
I’ve been very busy working on illustrations for the cookbook “Kim Cooks Sue Draws” and have not had much time for posting here but I had to take a sec today to share my progress on this one. It’s been a challenge to draw a flower doing a hula-dance while wearing a macaroni lei – and try to honor the Aloha spirit at the same time. But I’m pleased with what I’ve done – and Chef Kim Mahan says she is too. Whew!
