Blueberry Fruit Tart Oil on Canvas by Mary Hughes



8" x 8" Oil on Canvas

"Grocery Store Tart II"

Golden crust filled with a mild custard and topped with kiwi, strawberries and blueberries.

$125.00


When I walked through the bakery department in our local grocery store one day this little tart called out to me, "Wouldn't you like to paint me?" and the answer was a definite "YES". Having previously lived in an area with a very modest grocery store something like this really stood out to me. It was so pretty. I was inspired and did my best to get it home unblemished.


I had the most fun painting the blueberries. The crust on the other hand fought me all the way.


I was so taken with the little tart I did two versions of it. This is the second version.

E-mail me if you'd like to purchase. Thank you!
