Summer Vegetables 9 x 12 on Panel


This painting was so much fun to do. I haven't painted tomatoes, corn or onions in a longtime. Corn, leeks, and scallions are really fun to paint because of their roots. You can use the other end of your brush and make the squiggle like roots. Also, mixing the greens of the vegetables is great with the yellow-greens, blue-greens and everything in between. The painting was done for Karin Jurick's blog http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/ . By the way if anyone knows how to shorten this when posting like just the initials of the blog or something please let me know because I see on blogs a shortened link to the blog. Thank you.

Christine.
Type DSFDF then highlight it by draging mouse over it. Now move mouse to the 5th icon at top of form, you will see a LINK window popup. Click this icon and Blogspot will open a window for you to enter the URL address.
