the color of September #2 – bunches of radishes

with 10 comments

The reward of a recent visit to a local farmer’s vegetable stand – bunches of radishes.

Painting with red is very rewarding.  First, a little color goes a long way – I am still working with the small tube of paint I bought back in early June.  Second, red wakes me up the way no other color can.

I did two paintings, one of the bunch of radishes, fresh from the vegetable stand, and one of an individual radish, fresh from the ground, dirt washed away.  Hope you like them!

  3. Fresh radishes are beautiful to eat and to behold. It is almost time for me to plant radishes.

  5. I love red too. Vibrant, alive and pulsing, it does wake one up. The radishes are wonderful.

    • Hi Carol. I don’t usually associate radishes with fall, but there they were! Thanks, Jane
