Large Fruit Tart

Large Fruit Tart, acrylic, 11"x14", framed. © B Sistak Baur

The colors of the bright fruits beckoned me to do this painting. They are so distinctive and placed so beautifully. I found the inspiration for this piece in a bountiful French bakery where color and presentation are paramount.

Each fruit piece is individually sculpted with impasto acrylic paint using painting knives. They are shaped directly on the painting support so they are applied in the layers and allowed to dry before going on. The exception are the berries which are created separate from the painting, dried and later placed on the painting.
