Beet Stripes

Beet Stripes is a painting of one of yesterday's famous beets!  (Now cooked up in a pot of Borscht).  After washing the beet and placing it on a tea towel, I grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots.  The folds of the stripped towel along the placement of the earthy beet inspired me.  Simple pleasures...

Great work, it looks effortless. It has both crisp and subtle qualities. Those skillful stripes demonstrate that accuracy and 'painterly' can coexist.
