Limes and Garlic

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

Two of my favorite flavours in food... the limes are off my tree! I have painted garlic before and I'm amazed at how different the color of the outer skin can vary, some  are nearly white, others are pink/violet and these are an ochre color. It doesn't seem to affect the flavour!
My calendar will feature food again this year and I haven't quite finished twelve so I will have another few food paintings coming up in the next few weeks.
