Ginger, oil on canvas panel, approx. 6x8 in.

From 7/29. This was a nicely shaped piece/root/rhizome I saw in the produce bin - but what piece of ginger isn't interesting? It's a bit wormy, and I thought would be a cinch to paint, but I wrestled with it like it was a wyrm - it was out to get me, I was like St. George in my mind. One of the most stressful subjects so far.... What I do like here is the flatness of the red. Man, I like red.
