About This Painting
I was attracted to the contrast between the smooth yellow pear and the prickly texture of the cactus. So prickly, I had to handle it with pliers!

About Marie Fox
Painting is my passion! I love trying to capture in paint the colors, shapes and textures of fruits and vegetables. Painting each day is my creative means of getting to the heart of things. Recently I've been painting still life & figurative work on large canvases. This feels like home to me, perhaps because I'm tall. Big canvases also encourage a long exploration of an idea or subject. Figure painting is fast becoming my favorite subject. To visit my blog showing current oil paintings, click first link below. I’ve painted for many years and have created folk art for The White House, Panasonic, Bigelow Tea, Toyota, the Mayor of Boston and many private clients. My paintings have been featured twice on the Today Show as well as on the covers of Country Living and US Air magazines. I've been represented by galleries in New York, Boston, Nantucket, Charleston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Although I no longer paint in a folk art style, museum-quality prints of my folk art paintings are available at MarieFox.com. Click 2nd link below.
