LA JOLLA FARMER’S MARKET provides me with plenty of art inspiration. The snake-like Armenian cucumbers are just calling out to me to be sketched & put into a watercolor painting. The website for the Farmer’s Market is interesting because it has a chart, which shows what produce you can purchase in each month.
I don’t choose my cucumbers to eat, but rather for the interesting shapes, which I want to paint! The market vendors make jokes to me about how they are going to charge me $1 to take a picture. Sometimes I think they might think I’m a bit strange! Why can’t I just be a normal customer and buy their produce & take it home & eat it? They aren’t interested a bit in knowing that I’m doing watercolors of these beauties!
