8x6in oil on canvas panel. $125.
Day 8 in the 30 in 30 Days Challenge
My personal goal for this challenge - to paint only what I have
never painted or thought of painting before.
I do not know why I have never painted Turnips. I have never cooked
them, never shopped for them so maybe that is why I have never really
looked at them. They are great.
Love the purple and cream colors along with their long arty tails.
I painted these after a full day at the workshop. It took a couple of
hours and now I am bushed and going to bed. I do not have my
equipment with me to take really good photos so hope this one will do.
I do want to say that I loved reading all the comments about the red robe
and the "large versus small" answers to my questions.
Thanks so much for taking the time. It means such a lot to me.
I hate to brag, but a very nice event took place today.
I was featured on The Art Room. If you have never visited this blog
I hope you click on and read the piece. I have been a follower since artist
Taryn Day started it. She usually has very interesting interviews or articles
about famous artists, dead or alive, but this month she is featuring bloggers.
What she wrote about my work I will treasure.
Workshop went better today.
