Blog / 2020 / My First Food Art

April 16, 2020

I was also inspired to paint fresh vegetables because, for while there, I didn’t have access to many. I’d been following the stay-at-home orders as scrupulously as possible, and, when I did go out for groceries, there were shortages—especially of things I could actually afford. As someone who was part bunny before she even became a vegan, this was trying, so I decided to paint my happy foods. (A friend has since pointed me to a group that delivers vegetables locally and for okay prices, so my inner bunny is now satisfied, thankyouverymuch!)

These mixed media pieces are each priced at $90 plus shipping—see all currently available artworks. There are prints or other pretty items with these images in my Redbubble shop: parsley, jalapeño, and leek.
