Asparagus (or the Blue Rubberband)

"Asparagus" 6 x 6 Oil on Gessobord
SOLD (and lost to the great USPS in the sky)

After a really lovely Mother's Day, it was back in the studio this morning. This painting was for the Daily Paintworks Challenge - Paint Your Vegetable. This is the first time I have painted asparagus in oil, so it was a challenge in observation for me. As always I look for the lights and darks and try to paint those more importantly than the object itself.

Life beats down and crushes the soul, but art reminds you that you have one. Stella Adler
