turnip revisited

6"x6" oil/ hangable panel


I decided since today is a square root day 3/3/09 I should do a square painting with a root veggie as a subject. Well yesterday was such a day so I cleaned the turnip and tried it again. This time the purple was more prevelant and I tried to clean the edges a bit. Finally I ate it raw with horseradish. I love earthy tasting things and this worked well. Who needs cumudin when you can eat turnips and horseradish?

Wow! Look at that gorgeous color. You have implied the shape, texture and waxy feel so beautifully. I admit I always click on your paintings to see the larger view, just to savor the brushstrokes. MMMMMMMMM.
