Mixed Media Monday - Fruit
This week the very talented Hermine is guest host on Mixed Media Monday, and she has chosen the challenge prompt of "fruit". I had no idea where to start with this subject - it's not something that came easily to me. So while I was mulling over fruit, I thought of Carmen Miranda and her flamboyant hats, often adorned with fruit. So, Carmen it was - and since I couldn't find any good quotes from her, I used a phrase from one of her best known songs. The piece is done on a 4 x 4 inch or 10.2 x 10.2 cm square canvas board. The background is done with acrylic paints and the picture and words were computer generated.
