I picked these from our humble little vegetable patch. And humble it is-- just a couple of tomato plants and a few cucumbers and peppers. But it has been a long time since we've planted a garden, and I had forgotten the thrill of harvesting something nurtured with one's own hands. I knew these had to be today's painting.

Excellent work Don. Very cool work with opposites - shapes, colors, etc. Vegetables are elevated to a new level here.

Don, those two have got personalities of their own, and the colour on that tomato is wonderful!

I've been trying to think of how to say it...these veggies are so present. They have great dimension.I love looking at them.
I enjoyed the daily thrill of the Ocean series. Wonderful work.

Tiles...maybe that's the direction I should go...start showing up on backsplashes around the country :)
Thanks, Lu.
