This artist is most famous for painting beautiful, decadent, delicious looking food!  This week you're supposed to be drawing food, right?  I hope you'll read some of this article and look at his work for inspiration.  I know during quarantine it is not likely we'll have food like this in our home, I wish we did at the Glovinsky house!  It's a longer article than I've posted before but read some about him, look at his artwork, and draw some food for yourselves!
