Not Your Mother's Avocado Green

The title and (coupling of my subjects) may seem a bit random. But as my son often points out, Life is pretty random.  Plus, I have taken the liberty of changing the title of this painting sinced I posted it in Pay Attention earlier this month.

Not Your Mother's Avocado Green, 2010
Acrylic on canvas
10"x 10"
Perched on my kitchen counter, this cut avocado caught my husband's eye.

Appreciating it from a visual (and not culinary!) perspective, Scott suggested that I paint it.  It's lovely green meat and rich brown pit seemed like the perfect companion to my pseudo biker boots. A staple in my fall and winter wardrobe, they are hip, easy to slip on, and cheap (shhh!)

I wear them all the time, and no animals were harmed... perfect for the animal lover and non meater that I am!

Do you have any boots that look like this?
What fruit or veggie would you pair them with in a painting?
