I went to visit my sister and her family last weekend. They have a new baby just a month old and he's adorable :) While they were resting in the afternoon I decided to draw some of my sisters very nice cloves of garlic. She had just harvested some in the morning. There were still several in the ground and I loved the big round seed heads. I drew some of those too but they didn't turn out quite like I had in mind. I think I needed a much bigger piece of paper to get the effect I wanted.
I painted this years ago when we went on a camping trip to Owhyee, Oregon. This creek running through the canyon was dry and I thought the river rock was really neat. I made it into a note card recently. Have a good weekend!
