Sushi California Roll Still Life Oil Painting – Karen Winters

California Roll Sushi
6″ x 6″ Still life

Wait a minute, it’s a still life, not a landscape or seascape. It’s rather abstracted with some wild violet colors in that rice-outside part. The planes of the food are distorted in unusual ways. Who hacked Karen’s blog?

Let’s just say it was fun to paint outside of the bento box. Being experimental can be a very liberating experience. Maybe not as daring as eating fugu, (which I haven’t tried, thanks) but a little unexpected. I’m thinking that this might be a good way to rationalize my sushi addiction. Pass the hamachi sashimi, please.

If you have a question ….

    This was just perfect for me to see this morning! I am taking Nel’s oil painting class and am supposed to be making some thumbnails for a still life painting. I’ve been wracking my brain as to what to use and you just showed me to get up close and personal! I needed this fresh point of view right now. Thankyou. I personally don’t care for sushi but I like your painting.
