If eating oil paint wasn’t bad for you, well, you know. This is the delicious work of Australia painter John Honeywill. He paints “the quiet visual conversations between everyday objects; paintings that explore presence and stillness in the genre of the still life – a genre that links the intimate world with the public.” Yes, yes he does. His portfolio is full of lovely tabletop subjects like bowls filled with gooseberries, and old jugs overflowing with flowers – but it’s Friday, and honestly the only thing I could see were his beautifully reflected meringues, rocky road bars, and those pink blocks of Turkish delight … ah yes, let your weekend cravings begin. You’re welcome.

    I grew up in Turkey!!! I can taste that Turkish delight melting in my mouth and feel its powdered sugared squishyness.

    I saw this quote on his website: “I paint the quiet visual conversations between everyday objects; paintings that explore presence and stillness in the genre of the still life—a genre that links the intimate world with the public.” I love the idea of taking a moment to examine and reflect the stillness between two common objects. Thanks for sharing!

    John’s work is incredible. He was my high school art teacher 25 years ago, and he continues to inspire the next generation of artists today. Thank you for sharing his work with a greater audience! xx
