"Marchè Forville" - Cannes, France 2006
Guache on paper. 68 cm X 50 cm / 27 x20 inches. A basketful of fresh fruit requires a sumptuous pallet of colours to recreate the springtime delights one can find at the local marchè in southern France. My original idea / inspiration weren’t to capture the ripe raspberries bursting red. But as I began to lay out the composition, I couldn’t resist adding the other fruit as their bright intense colours and various textures were perfectly complimentary to my original berry theme.
"I Fichi" - Toscana, Italy 2000
Acrylic on canvas. 64cm x 64cm / 25 x 25 inches. The artist brings into awareness the remarkable interchangeability of tonality between the fruit’s luscious pulp and the human hands as they intermingle.
