Tuscan Flavor 1 – Fennel and Mushroom

“Tuscan Flavor – Fennel and Mushroom”
6 in x 6 in

Remember how I said I was watching more food network and less politics for the moment? As part of that trend, I’ve enjoyed shopping for some vegetables I don’t usually prepare, among them, fennel. This delicate vegetable and its companion mushroom called for a quick portrait before their trek to the salad bowl, and I obliged.

This is the first in a series … more Tuscan Flavor still lives to come. Oooh, this means more shopping, doesn’t it?

    Karen, I like the sensitive handling these vegetables. Although at rest, they remind me of astral bodies moving through space, like a klingon battle cruiser docking with the mother ship. (I’m not a trekkie nerd, really) Live long and prosper.

    Sounds like a GREAT series to me, both of the things I love, painting and food!
    What can I say, “I love your art work”!
