Volta Voloshin-Smith, A Slice of Still Life with Cake - Original Painting
A Slice of Still Life with Cake
9 x 12 inches
Watercolor on Arches paper
"Painting food brings up a sense of belonging, of sharing a meal and sharing in each other’s triumphs and losses. It is how I tether myself to my environment; always inspired by a local chef’s recent creation and moved to the point of tears upon seeing beautiful and fresh produce.
My art aims to uplift, to encourage, to color. I embraced watercolors as my chosen medium because of its effervescence and soothing qualities. My intention is to combine the joy of vibrant colors and the calm of watercolors for an experience of pure, unfiltered joy, the kind we all used to have back before we were told who we needed to be by society."
