There's something human about that garlic!- the paintings of Wendy Van der Drift

Wendy Van der Drift posts a painting a day on her blog "Painting Daily" Her beautiful paintings reference old masters and dutch still life painting.
What I like is that her composition and subject matter is modern and humorous. There's something human about that garlic!

beautiful paintings, i particularly like the last one with the ginger. looks like she's studied the palette of the masters... it's a somewhat lost art these days and i think there's only a handful of painters worldwide that really understand "seeing color" in the old master painter's sense. nice paintings.

Wow, you moved me. I have been looking at my paintings and thinking about the oodles, because I'm exposing them to the public face to face in August at Ken's Gallery. So, I kept thinking they are rather like people, enjoying each others company, and was wondering if it was just my weird brain seeing that, or if others could see it too, then you wrote this. Thanks so much for the clarification, and your kind words. The other beautiful thing happening here is, I only found this today, because I was about to link you to my blog, and opened yours up to get the address, and voila ... synchronicity at it's beautiful finest. Take care, see you soon, and I am still coming for that cuppa !

There is something so soothing about Wendy's work. Even the Clay work she has posted is calming somehow.
Yup. Yup. Very nice.
Vibrant and juicy also spring to my mind when I see her paintings.
Great thing this internet!
