"Dick And Lee's Radishes"
Watercolor   10x14
Inspiration and Design: View subject
I constructed a still life of several garden vegetables given to me by my parents, Dick and Lee.  They harvest radishes, onions, and sweet potatoes from their garden in fall, and they generously give me some every year.  My dad is proud of all of his vegetables, but he particularly beams about his radishes.  As well he should be.  They grow the traditional round red variety, and a long white icicle type.  White is Dad's favorite.  Mine is red.  While painting this still life, I think I ate about twenty of them.  The inspiration for this painting is the natural beauty of my mom and dad's red radishes.
