Cloth and food

I allways need reference to do a painting. For these paintings of cloth, I was looking for a piece of satin. With satin you see the shades and folds the best. The only satin I could find in my house was my 9 year old daughter’s pajama pants!

So I had this still life set up… The pants draped around a tomato, an egg and then a lemon…
My children were a bit shocked in my  subject.

”’Franci’s pajamas with a tomato on it!!”







 oil on canvas   (25 x 25cm)

These paintings were bought by a lovely lady who is an art ambassadress and collector of arts  on my etsy shop. I feel honored that it will hang in her house.
