Transition Captured through Botanical Art

Connie Scanlon’s Blueberries tell a color story of formation of fruit through its pale green stage at first, onto reddish-purple hues during growth and dark purple when ripe. ¬†Its wax coating offers a romantic haziness, an aesthetic impression and ¬†distinctive characteristic.

Scanlon has painted this fruit numerous times, clearly mastering its form through her dry brush technique and the subtle crescendo of color allows us to gaze and ponder about something we usually consume with haste.
