6x6in oil on canvas board $100. SOLD
Day 5 for the 30 in 30 days Challenge.
Here is another vegetable I have never painted before.
They are not the prettiest things, but do have neat
skinny ends. Their shape is similar a carrot, but unfortunately
they do not have a lovely color...reason not often painted?
It was hard to find them with leaves, but we have a farmers
market here and some were brought in just for me. Apparently
the reason you do not see them with leaves in the stores
they can give you a certain type of chemical burn.
I am off to take a figure workshop in Albuquerque, NM.
It is for 5 days and I am very excited. I am going to continue with
the Challenge, but most likely I will have to paint my piece
after class. We will see. It may mean I will not have time
to look and comment everyone's blogs.
Stay in touch... please.
