Farmers market #11
Garlic - 4 x $1.
6x8in oil on canvas panel $125. SOLD
Boxes of locally grown garlic create a pattern of cream
and hints of purple. Love the sign!
Don't ask me why I found this compelling to paint.
Who can explain the inner urge - that response of excitement
when viewing something which might appear ordinary to others?
I love color - certainly not much here.
I love pattern - very repetitive sameness here.
So I am questioning that strong response and am going to explore
more of this today.
