Caroline said...

Thanks zordis!

carla said...

Caroline - this looks delicious - orange and pineapple and grape ice with such pretty glowing colors and great movement. It makes me think of confetti and celebrations. So pretty!

Joe said...

Yep a lot of flavers!

andrea said...

Very tasty indeed. I amost took a bite...

Caroline said...

carla - you've given me an idea for something... thanks...

joe - thanks!

andrea - I can see your bite marks on my screen...

Wandering Coyote said...

Trippy!

This could be what you're mind's eye sees when you bite into something particularly succulent...

Mick said...

WOW! If it were possible to ask your taste buds to paint a picture of flavour? This would be it! WOW!!!

Caroline said...

Wandering Coyote and Mick - thank you - I've never actually seen flavours but I pretended I could whilst I did this.

ValGalArt said...

oooh lala i love these shapes and colours! it's like fruit punch!!!

cream said...

I can taste the juice!
Great flavour!

Caroline said...

valgalart - thanks I like the idea of it being a fruit punch!

cream - but can you cook it?

Nelly said...

Very nice abstract! I can taste it!

merlinprincesse said...

Happy colours for a dark Winter. Thanks Caro. Photoshop???

Caroline said...

ly3n - thank you - I imagine this week with all the different IF flavours around our monitors are going to get a good licking!

merlinprincesse - a little colour to your snow palace? I use Painter IX, sorry I forgot to write that on the posting...

Teri C said...

It just oozes yummy!

Caroline said...

teri c - thanks...

and I've just been watching - The Goodies... Goody, Goody, Yum, Yum... anyone would think it was put on especially for IF this week (It was a popular series throughout the '70s but I don't think I've seen it on TV since, until tonight)

gudbrandsdottir said...

My favorite colours...ORANGE, a lot of vitamins in there!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Guyana-Gyal said...

Orange 'n' grape 'n' tangerine 'n' just add ice. It's all dance-y and festive.

HAPPY NEW YEAR it says!!!

kg said...

i like your fruity blizzard! (and i also like the original photograph as well.) have fun with your camera!

Fern Lady said...

Ahh, another person went for the fruity! I've spent a lot of time painting pictures of fruit, and their beauty never ceases to amaze me. This captures a bit of that. I LOVE the photo in the post below here of the orange and lime-- makes a nice addtion to the image here for flavor. Happy eating and drawing and photgraphing and everything...

The Unknown said...

Yummy! This is really cool!
love

Juicy fruit!! The original photo is scrumptious but love your found interpretation ... it captures the essence of fruit! Also love the Goodies - Goody, Goody Yum Yum :)

isay said...

lovely photograph of orange, lemon and lime! my favorite colors!congratulations to your new camera. i've got a new one too!

nice outcome for your flavor entry to IF. it can also be a good textile design and the texture and design (again) can pass as a beautiful shawl.

have a nice new year's eve!

Caroline said...

gudbrandsdottir - Happy New Year to you!

GG - Sounds like a party - and I'm glad it says Happy New Year to you! Hope you have a good one.

kg - A fruity blizzard seems like a good name for the cocktail that GG has just created. (Thanks - I am having fun... I'll try not too swamp my blog with the outpourings...)

fern lady - thank you. Happy everything to you too!

unknown - strangely the cat you resemble here, although he was orange, liked fruit

anonymous - fruit essence? Essential to a healthy diet! Along with all the other goodies of course...
yum!

isay - congratulations on your new camera too! I like the idea of a shawl of flavour - to wrap oneself up in... yummy indeed!


Happy New Year!!!

Toni said...

This looks yummy!
Took a look at the original fruit photo and can deffinately see the fruit in this digital piece.
Love the colors and abstract painting to this.
And Happy New year to you also.

Nan said...

My mouth is watering :-)

Holly said...

Very yummy-spicy even! Love it.

Caroline said...

toni kelly - thank you for looking - I enjoyed making this and might try some more in a similar manner

nan - thank goodness virtual drool doesn't stain the blogs! I think a lot of this weeks entries would be very stained by now otherwise...

holly - at you've spotted the spice I put in the punch!

Jaimie said...

Lovely. So vivid and vibrant.

Knitting Painter Woman said...

This is succulent. I'd like yards and yards of silk painted just this way!

Caroline said...

Jaimie - thank you - vibrabt from you really is vibrant!

Sultry Painterwoman - a silk scarf is a great idea - I love the way silk takes colour... hmm... just when I've got loads of other projects on the go too...

Ellen said...

Caroline I just love your work...there is depth of emotion in what you do.

Anonymous said...

Pretty! This reminds me of a batik fabric.

Thanks Ellen... I'm glad I've got somewhere to channel the emotions!

And thank you to whoever said that! Batik is something I admire... though I've never tried doing it myself properly.

TXArtcGal said...

Reminds me of a fruit rollup! YUM!

Caroline said...

Thanks trisha!
