Painting of a woman with red lips eating a cantaloupe. Painting by Heather Buchanan

This image started with the vision of red lips at the very centre of a painting, and evolved from there. I wanted a cute little mullet and short bangs. The slice of cantaloupe happened at the end. Which makes it exactly like brunch.

I'm really enjoying playing with a limited palette. I also love her hands that don't make sense, her jabby shoulder, and those cute greasy bangs. She's stylish, cute, and still totally freaking out (and possibly talking on a piece of fruit like it's a phone, we can't be sure.)


Painted on 16x20" canvas board. Canvas board is flat, and this painting fits nicely in a storebought frame if you take the glass out. Fits Ikea frames, as well as thousands of frames online and
