Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

One of a series of five tree/plant paintings. My botanical pictures grew out of my earlier career as a medievalist. I've always been interested in ancient herbals, books and paintings about plants and the natural world.

The fig is an irresistible subject. The leaves are intricately indented. Ok, no visible flowers, but the fruit are irrestible. The sap from unripe figs supposedly removes warts. When ripe they have a captivating blue bloom and an opulent rounded shape. They are so nuttritious they were apparently the sole food of athletes in training in ancient Sparta.

Materials used:

mixed media on marouflaged board (fabric on board): plaster, acrylics and pigments with metal leaf
