Local Food Beauty

"Locavore Lovely" 16x20 acrylic on canvas with bronze metallic accents, 2012 Amanda Christine Shelton
Definition of LOCAVORE. : one who eats foods grown locally whenever possible. as in, "Local" + "-vore" suffix (like "carnivore"), first known use according to the interwebs = circa 2005

The Locavore movement is strong where I live. This piece is a reflection of that, inspired by a local organic farmers, gardeners, urban growers, and even women entrepreneurs and chefs I have known that have taught me about food (biodynamic produce = best I have ever eaten in my life!) Peaches and strawberries grow in abundance in summer here, and it is easiest in warm weather to eat healthy and from the earth. 

This piece is for sale, as a fundraiser piece for my upcoming trips and shows.  If you would like to give her a home, email me. Or, to see my other available paintings, check out my website image galleries.
