Name:
Location: New England, United States

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Back to food...

Vine Tomatoes (9x12, oil $100)

So these are vine tomatoes. As I said, the produce aisle is now a fair game for models of what to paint. And, the bonus is, I take said produce and make a meal out of it. Fun little 8x10 inch painting, with lost edges. I attempted to use solid, thick strokes of paint and make the tomatoes look "delicious". After they served their art model purpose, I chopped them up and made them into a reduction sauce. Add olive oil, garlic, spices and tomato paste and voila! A fine sauce for the linguine. Delish!!

There's something terribly amusing about the thought of you eating your painting subjects...

Not only that it makes the food a tax deduction! I need it for a model and then... eat it!

It's a bit villainish; I have made art of you, now I Must Destroy You! Be Sauce!
