Seville oranges have such a short season that I can never resist buying them when they come into the shops in January. It’s so easy to get engrossed in the painting but I did manage to make marmalade as well as this painting.
I am delighted that this painting of Choggia Beets has been awarded the Dry Red Press award at the ROI Exhibtion at the Mall Galleries. It will be made in to a greetings card. Mall Galleries’ Digital Content Creator Beatrice Bowles-Bray wanted to find out more about the paintings that have been selected for The Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition 2018, and specifically why many artists responded to the theme of Community Spirit with portrayals of food. I spoke with Beatrice about this, and you can read the full interview with me and the other artists here: https://www.mallgalleries.org.uk/about-us/blog/behind-scenes-farm-frame…
