Souffle Inspired

Mulberries
Painting size 15" x 11"


This painting of Mulberries was inspired by reading on a menu last weekend "Mulberry Souffle". Whilst away on our gastronomic getaway I mentioned to my friend Judy that this was another fruit I had yet to paint. She told me about the Mulberry trees that were somewhere on the vineyard property where our restaurant was located and also how she had used Mulberry leaves to feed silkworms that were studied in her Science classes she taught at high school. We did not order the souffle as we were all too full by the Sunday afternoon to eat another mouthful. I have tried here to add a little abstractness into the otherwise loose interpretation finding new ways to add interest to my edible series that I have been creating over the past 12 months.

  2. Lorraine - these mulberries look lovely...I like the squares in your design as well. Too bad you were too full for the souffle. It sounds like it would have been delicious. Hope you are having a great autumn day.
