This is a leftover from 2006 when I was painting Italian cuisine. The radicchio Trevisano is sitting on a canvas of 30x60 cm. This is the only painting leftover from hundreds of Italian Cuisine series that started with 16 paintings of garlic in 1998 and finished with flattened table like compositions in 2006. I look at this and think of grilling radicchio in the fireplace then dressing it with olive oil pressed from the olives that were in my garden. I can see the fireplace and smell the wood burning, It smells like home...
Tonight is the viewing of the paintings at auction at Rossini. They take absentee bids and surely speak English. It's a chance to get one of my large paintings for a good price. Good bidding
