Artist's Description

Luscious Layer cake with Berries and Whipped Cream" is the newest addition to the “Delicious” collection… as I finished the painting, with all the delectable juices of the berries dripping down the sides of the slice of the cake, the song MacArthur Park, was running through my head… those of my generation will remember it… you know… the song that nobody understood, and that nobody could figure out why Richard Harris decided to sing it… be that as it may, this cake has nothing in common with that song… this cake is a celebration, not a reason to mourn

Watercolour on Arches Paper…

Winner of the Floral watercolour and pastel challenge, and featured many times

I have been quoting Kenneth Bendiner’s “Food in Painting” off and on throughout the posting of this collection.. his book is a " sumptuous exploration of food images in European and American painting since the early Renaissance… he sees food painting as a separate classification of art with its own history.
He looks at famous works by the likes of Brueghel, Rembrandt, Chardin, Manet, Warhol and many others, as well as some very intriguing paintings by a variety of less well-known artists.
He examines everything, from Still Life, to hunting pictures, bottled water, market stalls, menus, dining rooms, diners, and much much more.
He explains how images of food can be purely symbolic (which I consider my images to be)… he talks about the sexual reference is of surrealistic food arts, food as a marginal element in allegories, the optimistic human centered Renaissance spirit of food painting, and the way abundance, success and fulfillment pervade this art… he considers it to be a very undervalued area of art history
