Acrylic on wood

"In the Turnip Patch" is a recollection of "The Enormous Turnip," a Slavic cousin to the "Stone Soup" story. It has only one action strong enough to inspire a long term memory. This is it.

I lovingly painted the leaves and the purple blush on the turnip, allowing only one addition to the story; a Turnip Moon rising in a red sky.
