Eat Me

I love the realistic nature and simplicity of these still life studies from artist Joël Penkman. She has an interesting painting technique, using egg tempera as her medium, tediously grinding her own paints and making her own gesso, the classic priming for Renaissance-style fine art. There is something so delectably uplifting about each of these paintings, no?
