Luscious Still Life

"The Striped Bowl"
48x79cms pastel

* Pommies *
57x88cms pastel

Yes, these are paintings!  they are photo-realism in the true sense of the word.  Painted in pastels, Jan Hodgson transforms fruits into the most exquisite still life, however, I believe there is something different about Jan's work which sets her apart from other still life artists - the blending of the pastels lends itself beautifully to fruit and with Jan's skill, and her reflection detail, they are just exquisite.  Wouldn'nt mind one of these paintings under my Christmas tree!
