Found this artist by the name of Joel Penkman who says that he loves food and he loves to paint so combining the two seemed like a good idea. I think he may have been right. Check out his awesome paintings below of all things nice to eat and pretty to look at and if you’re keen to see more of his work, including a series of 100 different teacups, click through to his site. I would love the painting of Lyle’s Golden Syrup tin, too awesome!
-My compositions are simple still-life studies with clean backgrounds to make easier for individuals to make a connection. Food triggers memories and emotion, I like that people can bring something of themselves to the artworks. My favourite medium is egg tempera. It is very time consuming as I make the gesso to prepare my boards and grind my own paint to mix, but the results are worth it.
