Dolce Vita #3
(18" x 36", oil on canvas)

After completing two smaller paintings I felt ready to tackle a larger, more involved piece. I used lots of textures here and was especially pleased to find a pomegranate at this time of year.

Again, because of the perishable nature of the cheese and fruit, particularly under hot spotlights, I had to work quickly. To extend the life of my props, each night I wrapped the individual pieces and refrigerated everything, rebuilding my set each morning.
