What's in yours?
Your refrigerator that is.
For the last seven months I've been on a health kick and have lost a significant amount of weight. As a result, the contents of my fridge have changed a lot. One, there is a lot less generally in there. Two, the contents consist mostly of fresh fruit and veg, meat and a variety of salad dressings.
Over on Daily Paintworks, where my small paintings now reside, a challenge is provided weekly. This week it was What's in Your Fridge? I'd never drawn or painted the contents of my fridge and thought it could make interesting compositions, so I took a few shots and found some that I liked. Plein aire isn't really possible with the fridge door open for ages...
I haven't painted it yet, but here's a sketch of what's in part of the fridge door. The small glass bottles of diet Coke I bought so long ago, they're probably gone off by now. Like many things, I buy them as art props but still haven't gotten around to using these yet. I rarely drink soft drinks, so there's little appeal to me to consume them, but the green tinged bottle with the classic shape appeals for a painting.
Hmmm, perhaps its time to have another look in the fridge.
