"Roe", oil on canvas, 22" x 28"
I spent most of yesterday painting sushi with roe, also known as FISH EGGS. The thought of fish eggs, the gelatin little bulbs that (unless you have Hollywood teeth) get stuck in your teeth for hours (and are not advised to be consumed on a first date... trust me, just stay away) make my skin crawl. However, much like painting a nude model, when trying to paint a subject correctly, I often get lost in my paint application, and the uneasiness of the subject slips my mind. The end result, if painted in it's intended fashion, often draws away from the once cringe worthy subject. This is another aspect of painting that I love: the ability for the paint and the canvas to show beauty in the most unlikely of places, simply due to the way and really art in which it was created.
Thus, on with the sushi... and I'll have roe with that.
