american squares

Vegetables are very photogenic.  While I was waiting in line at the butcher shop today, I took some photographs at the produce tables. (It’s a great butcher shop: while the focus is on the fresh meat and deli stuff, you can get everything you need to turn your meat into a great meal– bread, wine, prepared salads, basic fruits and vegetables, and ice cream.)

Here are two square crops of familiar veggies that are native to the New World:  have some American squares.

    I can see your photo of the peppers becoming a nice oil painting. Or maybe a watercolor. Nice composition!

    Better an oil or acrylic painting than a watercolor–that’s an unforgiving medium that I’ve never understood. When it comes to real world color, I’ll take a photograph any day. As it were.
