A hub for all things to do with design, furniture painting, photography, style, event planning [and some foodie bits for good measure].  

Art Inspiration: Color and Produce

I found a collection of 'food art' while I was at the Indianapolis Museum of Art recently.  These three pieces were displayed side by side, and were really striking.  I love the simplicity of the colors, forms and backgrounds of each piece. Fruit is such a classic subject, but I think painting it from this perspective makes it feel much more modern and graphic. I keep telling myself I'm going to start painting more [not just furniture, though I love it!] and this set of paintings makes me want to do just that!
