Masago Munchies

Masago Munchies
4-1/2" x 4-1/2", oil

This is my painting for the latest DSFDF challenge. I'm a big time sushi fan, but I had to look up the name for the bright orange roe on these California rolls. In the process I learned that masago is the cheap stuff, what you really want is something called tobikko. Personally I don't think I'd like either... I'm not much for seafood in general.

  6. Amazing how sushi keeps so much better on canvas than it does in the refrigerator. And...you have an award awaiting...coffee's on.

  7. Lovely rendition! I like how you have the blue and green tones in the white of the sushi...Reminds me of a line in "Girl With the Pearl Earring" where Vemeer says that there is no white in the color white.
