Day One Hundred-Twenty Four

                                           'Colorful Beets'

8 x 10 oil on panel
70.00 + 6.00 s + h

I found these at Whole Foods and was blown away with the beauty of them . I bought two bunches of them, I couldn't decide which ones were the prettiest.  I guess the people that shop there think I'm a bit nuts.  I take out, examine, and then put back one after another until I get the perfect one ! ha !  Well, I started painting them, and since my two granddaughters were here I had to keep starting and stopping on them. By the time I got ready to put the final touches on them this afternoon, they were totally wilted, so I had to guess at the extreme lights and darks...  Soooo, I hope I got it right... My 3 year old, Gracie, assured me the painting looked exactly like the still life... so I guess I'm good !!!


  1. My eye keeps dancing around in this painting. Love the colors and the curvy roots!

  2. Hun.....I really like this one! The variety of colors, tints and shades really gives it depth:D
