Rhubarb
22" x 30"
Watercolor
$  1,800.00
 
I painted the rhubarb because I saw one at the grocery store and couldn't take my eyes off of it for a couple of minutes. My eyes awakened and there I was teaming with visual note taking. What a combination of fiercely loyal reds and greens that stared me down, daring me to blink and look away. I came in close for a better look, like peering through a powerful microscope. I found some surprising ingredients. Imagine a chain of explosions expanding, the cells dividing in unison. Yes, when I painted my newfound subject, I exaggerated the colors, magnified the patterns and filled the picture to the brim.
