"Savory Roots"




















10 x 10" oil on canvas panel SOLD



This combo didn't last long. It's Spaghetti Sauce now! 
The purple thing that looks like a beet is a red onion.
Don't know why it was shaped that way but it was and
you know how that goes...paint what you see.

The colors in the cloth are a perfect compliment to the vegetables. These are my kind of colors by my kind of painter!

Gorgeous colors and just love the fresh feel! The fabric just pulls with the savory roots so well and I love that! You have such an eye for design:)

Bet it tasted as good as it looks! Your colors (and I bet veggies) are so fresh, and painted so well. (I also knew right away it was a purple onion.)
