Nuts for fruit and veg

I’ve been working on a series of fruit and veg for the last couple months and finished them up over the weekend. I was going for fun and funky, and certainly colorful.

These are the same technique I’ve used for florals in the past – a mix of monoprint, collage and watercolor that I learned from Karlyn Holman this spring. I love the element of the “happy accident” you get with the collage paper and the monoprinting process. You just never know what you’re going to get!

I’m going to frame up a few of the originals as groups of two or four I think, for placement at the Galleria. And I just sent scans of all of them, and the little birdies, to get prints in time for the Sept 2 First Friday event at the Galleria. Which are your faves?

    I like the grapes, strawberries and pears. Would look great in my kitchen.

    Yay! Matted prints of these should be available late next week. 🙂 Are you coming to the First Friday on Sept 2?

    Apples, Avocado, Radish and Artichoke are my 4 faves. My A level students are studying your Fruit and Veg prints.

    Hello, don’t get me wrong, avocado is a fruit not a veg.

    kind regards,
