The inspiration for this post came from my husband. Last night he came home with a lovely bag of turnip greens.. a HUGE trash bag of greens. Freshly cut and gorgeous but I knew a lot of work. So I washed,picked thru,and cooked greens before supper,after supper, this morning, and have the last batch on the stove now. They are delicious and so tender and bitter as good turnip greens should be. I don't put anything on them but some salt. Gran used to grease them with lard or butter. They had to glisten and almost glide down your throat. We try for the healthier way and they are still wonderful.
So I'm showing you my green in watercolor. I use just one, viridian. I can mix any green from that.. Here too is a vegetable painting I painted. It hangs either horizontal or vertical. Veggies have so much color. Ok,so I'll go finish my greens and then a short walk.I'll be painting in a bit. Talk to you soon.Diana
