A Starfruit, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2012
Sold! Private collection, Rumson, New Jersey
Several years ago I approached this subject with mixed success. The translucent flesh of this fruit compounded with the odd shape feels oddly artificial and contrived, like painting a big piece of colorful candy. The details become telling, as fine lines on the edges become defining delineations of some of the facets and angles. The waxy sheen provides a good study of reflections unlike anything else.
