Artist: Enzie Shahmiri Title: The Fruit Vendor Medium: Oil on Panel Size: 16 x 20 in
When I lived in Iran, I would often accompany my mom to go shopping to the different privately owned stores. This painting is a tribute to all those vendors who day in and day out would stock their stores with fresh produce.
While surfing the web one day I saw an image full of circles.. This image got me to thinking about how could I make a piece of art using circles. So I started looking around at the materials that I had on hand and found that I had a circle die that cut a series of circles. Then I found an 8 by 10 canvas and pulled out my paint..
I had all of my materials it was time to get started.
Supplies used: 8 by 10 Canvas Acrylic Paint Paint brush Acrylic Gel Medium - Golden Die cut Paper Circles Block to adhere foam shapes Circle fun foam shapes Heat tool to speed up the drying time
This was very abstract, no real design to this, just wanted to use the circles and blue.. Recycled some paper and went to work...
