Green Curly Kale, Black Ink

I cannot resist to paint the beautiful farming produce I bring home to eat. I am a member of the Park Slope Food Coop in Brooklyn and feel very lucky to have access to a vaste and always surprising selection. Often I pick greens or fruits not knowing what they really are. I usually take a picture of my pick with its label, to be able to identify its origins once at home online. This kale was so happily curly that I decided to use black ink with a round brush to play with the curls. I also painted a really attractive upside-down view from its stems. And of course had it for diner with a bean soup. When I started this series I imagined 2 or 3 paintings or ink mixed together nicely framed next to each other on a kitchen wall as a little family.
