The Ninefruit Bowls

In a piece I call the Ninefruit Bowls (picture above) I feel the subject is easily identified. On nine small fruit-sized bowls I drew nine unique fruits. The bowls are symbols of gifts that God has given to all people. In Scripture, Galatians 5:22 says, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control." This is an example of how my drawings can be allegorical. They remind me to eat an apple and to do a good turn daily. These small bowls are the most utilitarian forms I make, they stack nicely in the cupboard. They are "blue-collar" pots that were made to serve.
