Weeds Be Gone

"Les Carottes"
6x12 Oil on Linen

Ten minutes at Fresh Market, One bunch of carrots, Two hours at the easel.  If you've followed my blog, you are well aware of my passion for the produce section.  I ran into the store in hopes of finding inspiration and came out with the most beautiful carrots.  Too pretty to be called "carrots" so I decided that the french name "carotte" was more appropriate.  This painting is headed into a museum still life competition.  Eating carrots with fingers crossed.  I've included a photo of the carrots just to show how fresh & flawless my subject matter was.
