Asparagus


Hey, it's full-on spring now in Ithaca, no denying it.  There's birds checking out nesting sites under my porch again, and my housemates are planting potatoes and otherwise getting their SEVEN community garden plots underway.  

And asparagus is showing up at the farmers' market.  Yum, I heart asparagus.  Here's a painting I did this winter in celebration of this fine vegetable, and also as a practical demo painting for a class I was teaching, in watercolor and colored pencils.  (not a great scan though, sorry).

That stuff makes yer pee smell, much more so than your average Brussels Sprout. What's with that?

I have heard lesbians say that, um, it isn't the best thing to eat before, you know....
ANYWAY, beautiful green and purple colors there. :)
