on acid free paper
I looked in my magic shoe box of collage papers last night... and look what appeared... an Avocado!
After perusing the various colors and textures amongst my treasure trove of papers I was inspired to create Avocado Ripple... but I must confess that it was inspired by Avocado Gold, a previous avocado painting I did a couple of years ago. The ripped green paper utilized for the avocado flesh gives it a similar 3D appearance that I enjoy creating with oil paint and a palette knife.
If you click on the image for a close-up look you will see that I used some graphite for the shadow edge of the striped fabric where it drapes over the edge of the table.
Who knows what else is hiding in that shoe box?
