When a very special customer of mine asked if I want to paint an Italian style mosaic with the fruit vase, I first thought I did not hear her right: Mosaic? In Watercolors?!! But as an Artist who likes a challenge and loves to explore, I jumped to this project with enthusiasm.
We discussed the details and composition, colors and stylistic approach. The fruits and berries are all her favorites for cooking and baking. And the mosaic painting itself will become some sort of signature of her love to cooking with the heart and passion. From the last posts you remember, her jams are to die for!
And now here is a little game.
Try to find the following:
White Peach
Apricots
Strawberries
Plum
Raspberries
Blackberries
Cherries
Pear
Pineapple
Did you do good?
Now here is another challenge:
Find a Habanero Pepper
It is there.
Wonderful! 
How could it have all of that? I can give you a recipe: patience My Friends. When I was painting each tile of this fruit mosaic I meditated while creating those virtual stones: rock by rock, color by color, all in Watercolor!! :0)
And here are a few detailed images of this Mosaic Fruit Vase:

My Jam Labels project is developing into very interesting and a creative venue. Not only my customer makes delicious sweet jams, she also mixes a sweet with a heat. And here is the great wild example, pineapple habanero. When I received her request to paint that spicy family my mind was wondering how to accomplish this unusual combination, how to place papers next to the pineapple in the way they compliment each other. 
I cut my pineapple and left its beautiful leaves for the contrast. The habanero peppers were placed on both sides to give a stability to the composition. Their tails are up in the air as if whole painting is smiling. I swear when I painted this piece my mouth was watering just from thinking of flavor, sweetness and richness of this combination.
 And the good part to work on such projects such Jam Labels is that my customer provided me with the sample. And oh yeah: It was delicious! 
Muy Caliente!!!
