Reflections 5"x5" oil
I think I have finally come up with a pretty good method for photographing my work...yeah! I am currently in love with garlic. I have always loved garlic for its culinary deliciousness and medicinal uses, but now I am studying it for its aesthetic contributions. Although this looks like 2 bulbs, it actually is one with a reflection in a mirror. I decided to leave out the mirror reference and just go with the two bulbs. I worked hard on creating interesting grays in this, something I struggle with. It is also a different size. Sometimes it is so soothing to paint a very simple but beautiful piece of our world! Funny thing is, right after I finished this we went out to eat at a new (for us) restaurant and there were 2 framed watercolors above our table of garlic...very lovely. I couldn't read the name f the artist.
