This is quite summery looking, even though grapefruit is a winter fruit. I had been thinking I was obsessed with my geraniums, but now I think I am just obsessed with the blue backgrounds. All of my flower paintings have blue backgrounds, but I've never been that interested in them before... Inspiration for this composition came from Smitten Kitchen, a fabulous cooking blog that also has fabulous photos.
I am an artist living and working in Minneapolis, MN. I studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I do a little freelance illustration and also sell my work from my studio and at art fairs. I work part time as a graphic designer as well.
My husband, son, and I live in the Longfellow neighborhood.
