This week I've been working on The Tasting Room Series, one of my latest photorealistic endeavors. These acrylic paintings were inspired by my passion for food - how it tastes, how it is presented, and how our relationship with food is cultivated. I wanted to take culinary aesthetics to new heights with this series, painting palatable treats against clean & contemporary backdrops (see post from 30/03/2011). The above featured work, the second fortune cookie in the series, is 30" x 36". I'm currently working on two additional fortune cookies...please stay tuned!
