Daily Painting Botanical, "Red Hot Radish"
"Red Hot Radish"
Oil on Panel
If Whole Foods is looking for a veggie illustrator, I just qualified for the job. Actually, as you can see in the framed version, this would really look great in your kitchen. It was not hard to fall in love with this radish and its companions. The young woman at the Farmer's Market was charming, pretty, and told us stories about her husband growing them and then picking them the night before the market. Farmer's Markets are one of the best treats of the spring and summer season. I love the produce and the people selling. The experience just brings it all home, the real serious business of delicious food.
Anyway, here is my radish, ripe for the picking.
