Giant Beets


"Giant Beets" is an original water-mix oil painting on wood board and attached frame. Lettering is stamped around the border which repeats the phrase: GIANT BEETS FROM JAKES GARDEN - there is a story below* 😌
I rolled a sewing pattern wheel through areas pressing the points into the wood to make designs and texture. This technique was also applied to the frame to create a distressed finish. Some areas are particularly marred, such as upper left edge and midway on right side frame, due to natural flaws in the wood. I've posted photos to show as clearly as possible.

*I gave my 15-year old grandson a summer job uploading item data to my Etsy shop. He is an aspiring writer, so one of his duties was to write his thoughts about my artwork ✒︎ Tybo’s Tall Tales: This image is of four radishes, that one of my nana's friends gave her. She thought that they looked a lot like beets because of their deep red/purple color. She was amazed at how large her friend's husband had grown these beets! When she presented this painting at an exhibit with the title "Giant Beets from Jake's Garden" her friend who gifted them pulled her aside to talk to her privately. She whispered, "You know that those are radishes, right?" My nana was mortified to learn of her mistake in such a public way, but she laughed about it.
