playing with food

Always a good subject for a painting, food takes the center stage for our next project.

We are preparing to paint in fresco secco, somewhat like da Vinci with his Last Supper
But somewhat smaller than his almost thirty foot wide painting. These will be about 8 x 8 inches.
And the spirit is somewhat secular.
I am in total gratitude to my mother for providing the food sculptures as still life objects. 
With these realistic sculptures my students could study a cup of tea or a bowl of cereal without fear of it changing over time, or attracting bugs to the classroom.
Every art teacher should have these kind of props, though they are rare and precious to find.
I even have a broken egg!
