Pomegranate ice cream anyone?


The Pomegranate is a strange fruit. So pretty, but I can't be doing with all those seeds...Such a palaver to eat when really it's just crying out to be subject toan artistic still life (or the juicer).

Saying that, it has taken me 42 years to get arround to attempting to capture on canvas its 'paint me' insides - and the task proved much harder than anticipated, a bit like eating those seeds...

I've been playing with a new technique I developed on my eCourse. My students may recognise it... Nigel for one has been experimenting quite successfully with 'the Britannia Coconut Dancers' (you really need to google them...).

Unless you're in 'the circle' though, it is all top secret. I mean I could tell you, but then this post would go in self-destruct mode and seriously you don't want pomegranate seeds flying out of your screen at you...

This is all actually in aid of the Summer of Colour baseball flavour ice cream (I'm sure it was called something like that...). Anyway, it was pink, white and nuts, which between them I do believe this piece of art and writing has just about covered.

  5. This is a lovely canvas. Too bad it took so long to come to fruition. I suspect it's got something to do with the seeds (grin).

  14. Oh Lisa, you had perfectly captured the essence of pomegranate!. I could easily see the juicy little seeds, and the white pulp. Delicious fruit but so miserable with getting the seeds out. Someone needs to genetically create seedless pomegranate, just like they did with grapes! :)
