The Venus Flytrap

Acrylic on canvas, 2013

I have a hard time doing anything else than characters and faces, so the goal was to paint an object of some sort. Instead of a still life painting of an apple or a vase with flowers, I decided to something more vulgar yet not pornographic. I strived for the photorealistic quality, yet trying to keep a certain clean estethic and then also adding a touch of humor with the flies and the title. I was actually gonna call it "The Juicer" and have some dripping action in there, but in the end it was better this way.
