big old okra
6" x 6" oil on panel
I was picking okra, or what's left of it, this morning in my garden. Okra seems to grow at least three inches every night. One day a flower, the next a lovely little green okra ready to eat. No matter how often I pick, I always miss one. I will notice a stalk on the ground and sure enough, a gigantic okra at the end of it! Although inedible......it was such a lovely shade of green, I decided to paint it. A little past it's prime but still valuable!
