Deux Cerises

Deux Cerises
N° 110
oil on gesso board - Italian fabrication 10x10cm
SOLD

From 1998 to 2006 I painted hundreds of small food paintings, mostly of Italian recipies and wrote in the background.  There are many photos of these on my website, you can see a link on the right.  This little painting has written in the background: deux cerises , due ciliege, zwei kirschen, deux cerises.
I like to use a sharpened soft lead pencil, something like a N° 7 lead, to write on the board.  It engraves the paint and is wonderful for details.
