Asparagus (left)


Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6"

Here is the sister painting to yesterday's. This photo is probably a bit more accurate. This show how inconsistent my old camera is. A little secret, though...I have a new, better camera coming soon. Trust me when I say I can't wait for that.

Hi, I occasionally stalk your blog. I really like the lighting in this painting. Asparagus is my favorite vegetable. I grew it last summer at first you plant the roots they kind of look like spiders, and then a couple of weeks later you get these sexy spears, thank you for capturing the sexiness of the asparagus!

Very unique presentation. I like it!

Mike!

Out of the two paintings, I like the previous asparagus painting a bit better for some reason.

This latest one is much brighter in appearance and that asparagus head looks almost like an insect hand ready reach out and grab me!

Eeek!

Still lovely though!

Beautiful painting. Delicate touch and the box is especially remarkable. Question - what type of camera are you getting? Mine is getting old and I've struggled with how do best photograph work. Love to hear your thoughts.
