5 X 5"
Oil on canvas

Isn't this cute? I'd never seen one before. I was in the produce isle, foraging for daily subjects and saw this. It was a bit worse for wear as time had sucked away it's youth, but I think that made it more interesting. Like me. When it was first picked I'm sure the litle bonnet of foliage on top was quite dapper. The bumps are probably because it's beginning to spoil, but ya gotta love it, warts and all.

I'm much more tense about posting now that my paintings are available for sale on the Daily Painter's site. And, that's a good thing because I'm realizing how impatient and lazy I am. I left the daily I had planned for today out to dry yesterday. Perhaps we made a little too merry last night because it was still there this morning— complete with pooled droplets of dew—when I let Devlin the wonder dog out for his toilette! Oops.

A paper towel made everything ok, but I had to resurrect this piece which I tried to rush through on Friday and hated. And since I spent some time with it today, I really like it, so all is well. Slow and steady wins the race right?
