There is just something about asparagus — I love everything about it! I love how it taste, the feel of it, the color, but especially how it’s sold. I’m fascinated in the store how it’s standing up on end, bound with a beautiful, colorful rubber band. When I happened across asparagus on sale at Whole Foods, I knew I had to paint it.

For this small painting, I wanted to play with color. I know that gouache is capable of rendering an object in great detail, but I also know that it can do an excellent job of showing one color against another and exploring the relationship of warm and color pigments — that’s what I wanted to focus on for my painting.
