Salad

My daughter makes a very yummy salad. The last time we had it, I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was. That’s why I decided to paint it. I’ve tried to show highlight and shadow to give it depth. Note the different shades of color in each object.

I’ve never wanted to eat one of your paintings before! Do you give out recipes with your art?
