In my Limoncello painting, I show an orchid heart. Its round shapes and touches of acid yellow, liquid blue and sweet magenta recall the scented flavor of lemon and the tasty liqueur that is concocted with this fruit: the limoncello.
This painting is part of my Garden of flavors series, which invite you into a larger-than-life universe where the senses mingle. In these paintings, I wanted to illustrate the associations that are created in my mind between flavors and colors. I fixed them on the canvas to remember the flavors I shown using different colors. I illustrated how the fruit flavors become liquid blue, sweet pink and succulent yellow tones, and vice versa, how the colorful flower petals can form great delicious waves in my mind and remind me of the fruit, candy and pastry tastes.
The patterns of the painting continue on the 1½in sides. It is strung with picture cords ready to hang.
