In real life these grapes are as tired as I am. they've been sitting out since Thursday night and the stems are getting a little brittle. The poor grapes may have lost their luster too, but they've served me well. Thank you grapes.
My Aldi's bouquet is earning it keep. Every day I think that I will paint during the day, but I rarely do. Nothing wrong with being a night owl, except it allows me no wiggle room for later when I look at a painting with fresh eyes and see... something. I occasionally make changes even after I've posted something. That's a confession.
You never know what you'll find at Aldi's. We made a quick trip there today and I saw these luscious pink roses for under $4.00! The only place that can top that is Trader Joes, but that's almost two hours away. So, a quick painting today, and maybe another tomorrow.
It's usually not a great idea to have an even number of objects in a composition. I was challenged this week to try it and I took the bait. Gotta use up these beets, after all. It feels OK to me and it's kind of quirky, which I like.
I absolutely hated beets as a child, but I think they're great now. Such a useful vegetable - I'll start with the tops and add them to a stir-fry. Then I'll roast the beets and have them maybe with carrots and potatoes.... Then, in a salad. I predict one more painting too ;-) I've painted beets before and I think I did better. Maybe not.
