Strawberries and artichokes and leaks and pears and...

Years ago I had an order of a series of paintings representing fruits and vegetables for french kitchen designers based in Southampton(NY), Spirit of France.
Most of these paintings were squares of 41x41cm...

I remember going to the local open air market and picking up the best looking fruits and vegetables...something I rarely do, I must admit.
Some other paintings were bigger, 90x90cm...


...some others in an intermediate format, 90x41cm

Here is one last painting that I had done a year before I think.
I loved painting them all.

  1. These are exquisite:) You can make even the simplest things appear so beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Pascal!

  2. Thank you for your kind comments Bonnie, I do appreciate. The"simplest things" are beautiful , the pleasure of painting them is perhaps the pleasure of showing and sharing this beauty.

  3. Beautiful! The Brocolis reminds me of a tree study in Norrköping:) Hope everything is going great in France!

    Greeting from a VERY snowy Sweden

    ps. look at this "film" I made for our municipality. I've taken all of the photos during the last two winters here.

  4. Dear Mattias and Lisa,
