I thought I would politicise a still life. Since it’s Earth Day that’s a good enough reason to call this one Food Security #1.
Yes it’s bread with butter and avocado. But what a luxury each of those things are.
These happened to be sitting on the wooden board in the kitchen – pretty much as are – and it was hard to preserve each item long enough to paint due to passing traffic.
Also in keeping with the other humble things recently posted, those things which affluence might have taught us to take for granted or disparage as being ‘fattening’ or ‘full of allergens’, many others would relish.
A whole fresh avocado, a complete loaf of bread with 7 different seeds and 250g of butter. A king could not live better than this.
