One of the best places to get some colorful and interesting reference photos is at Farmer’s Markets.  Sunday I rode over to Little Washington with my friend Sandra.  We wanted to check out their market and even though it was drizzling rain we found some nice things (bread, baskets, and tea) as well as got a few nice shots for future paintings.

While I don’t have a new Farm Animal finished for today’s post I do have food that a little farm animal might eat….lettuce!

This is the beginning of a lesson we did in art class a few weeks ago.

It took a couple of weeks of lessons for me to complete this one  because I often start a piece and help others get their painting started and don’t get back to mine.  I did finish it in between other projects though and here is the way it turned out.

SquashA friend of mine plants the most beautiful vegetable garden every year down by the river.  And his generosity is enjoyed by so many of his friends.  Often in the summer I will find a bucket of delicious veggies on my front stoop.  Today it was yellow crookneck squash (Joe knows this is my favorite) and cucumbers.  What a treat!

I stewed them up with some fresh green onions that I got at the farmer’s market and a little butter, salt, and pepper.  Now summer has arrived!   Thanks Joe.
