Fruit Art


I am loving Emily Proud‘s colorful food paintings. Anything that combines food and art I’m into, and Emily’s paintings make me want to run out to the nearest farmers market and buy a bunch of juicy, delicious fruit. Her whimsical watercolors are going to be on display at Studio Gallery on Polk street this Sunday (March 17) for their Delicious show. It’s all work about and inspired by food and drink. Yum!
