"Konnitiwa", oil on canvas, 16" x 20"
Keeping with my passion for the art of the everyday, I have begun a "Foodie" series, the piece above being the first to be added to the collection. Roll your eyes if you must, but while the term foodie is often synonymous with snob, I think of it as exploring an art and a different way to approach food. The food that is often presented in "foodie" restaurants I find to be almost heartbreaking to eat, it is often so beautifully presented.
Such is the case with sushi, and I found the particular roll depicted to be absolutely gorgeous (have no fear, I did eat it the minute I finished painting). Hard to create with the vivid layers and delicate texture, I was curious to see if I could make it just as appealing on canvas. I like the piece, but think that a more linear canvas showing multiple pieces of sushi would be even better.
