Farm to Table - Sold

Farm to Table 22x22 oil

This painting was inspired by the idea of buying local organic food.  They are onions that I received as part of my weekly share, (although I wouldn't serve onions like this),  I am impressed and inspired each time I pick up my food from the market.

I spent last Saturday at Manorun Organic Farm, (the farm where I get my weekly shares from).  It was probably the hottest day of the year!!!  A couple of other artists and I were invited to show and sell our art, as well as paint.  Trying to find a spot to paint in the shade as well as being able to catch a breeze (when there was one), was a tricky thing to do.  We ended up painting under a huge willow tree, while trying to stay as cool as possible.
