Yes...more well as more veggies.
Been soo busy I almost forgot to post them here.

I may be ready to break from the veggies soon. They were a bit more fun than I anticipated.

Now, with the growing season over in New England....inspiration may not come so quickly for more. We'll see.

I also did another Klimt Korn piece. A "Kluster of Korn" you might
With Halloween right around the "korner"....guess it's fitting!

fun with Klimt

Klimt Korn
Not sure how it happened....but when creating a new fun piece....candy corn...Klimt came to mind.
How that happened with a little piece of candy, I'm not sure.
However...the marriage of the two seems to be a thing of beauty. Who knew.
I just love the patterns and the shiny gold & silvers. Perfect. I found myself carving more stamps to use with my Gelli Plates to create even more lovely papers for it.
I am now on a bit of a roll with some more Klimt inspired Torn Paper Paintings. Stay tuned.
I do believe a series is on the
You never know where inspiration will come from.
Sometimes the least likely places!!
Embrace it.

of  "corn"....Indian corn!!
A sure sign of fall...along with pumpkins. Hmmm....maybe I should consider painting pumpkins??'s another 3ft tall piece....colorful Indian corn!
I'm really enjoying working on these tall pieces.
This one makes a great match for the tall asparagus painting.
Hope they manage to find a home together!!

Larger than life!

I've always been drawn to art that displayed the most common items in a larger than life format.
Something about elevating the small things in life not normally thought about to the status of something extra large and important has always made me stop and think. Suddenly you recognize details and color and beauty that you hadn't even given a thought to before.
Well...when I woke up one morning with the idea of an "asparagus" painting in my mind...I just knew that this was one of those pieces.  I mean could it be anything less!!
Soo...this 3 foot asparagus paper painting was born.
I think it has quickly become one of my favorites at this point.
Certainly makes me appreciate all the detail and beauty in this simply little veggie!!
