Call Any Vegetable (1999/2000)
Watercolors and Charcoal on Paper

One of my rare attempts in the turn-of-the-century to create an actual, ya know, painting. Instead of the abstract messes I usually assemble. The grafitti-style line drawings with plant motifs was a thing I always loved to do, and it was fun to add some colors to fruits and leaves. As always, I was mindful of the composition and the form, as well as the shading around the edges, aiming for that "classic" 20th Century abstract look.  I really should be painting more of these.

The title was a Frank Zappa reference. I was going through a Zappa/Mothers of Invention phase around that time.
