“Avocado” Acrylic on MDF, 5″ x 7″

This painting is a favorite of mine, partly because of the use of both “cool” and “warm” greens together. It was auctioned just after the terrible tornado damage in Oklahoma City in 2013, and all proceeds from this painting, along with one other I submitted, went to Central Oklahoma Humane Society to help care for the many pets that were lost and homeless after that disaster. I posted the painting on St. Patrick’s Day, so I suppose it could have been called “the eatin’ o’ the green,” because that’s what I did after the painting was finished. That’s one of the perks of painting food.
