Plant Portraits

 

Several years ago, in 2013, I developed the idea for this painting series.  I was new to Atlanta’s local food scene and eager to learn.  I wanted to explore the disconnect between producers and consumers of food.  However, life isn’t linear, and other opportunities took priority over painting.  In the meantime, I’ve gotten to know a lot of farmers and food purveyors and chefs; and I’ve learned a lot about food and farming.  But the more I learn, the more I realize that I don’t know.  So, once again I’ve circled around to this painting series as both a personal journey and a platform for educating others about how food (and other things) grow.

 

Follow along on my blog and Instagram (@kenanpaintsthings) for the stories behind the farms, the plants, and the paintings. I hope you and I both learn a few things.
