Shape or Color: What clicks with you?

A few years ago I took my camera and a roll of Ilford black-and-white film (yes, real 35mm camera film) to the produce department of my grocery store. I was stunned when I got the photos back from the camera shop: fresh vegetables looked like rock formations, broccoli looked like coral, raspberries looked like bee carcasses. This painting is called “Peaches, Apples, Plums, and Stones.” So happy we can see in full color!


About Bobbie Herron

I sit here in my loft studio, surrounded by watercolor brushes and paints, fountain pens, sketchbooks, journals- wanting more than anything to write and paint at the same time. I am the fourth generation of journal-keeping women, starting in 1862, and I have read their words and between their lines. This blog was inevitable: thoughts on the unsung glory of women whose lives were recorded and transformed through their writing and art.
