100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'
Oil 4 x 4
I have to admit, when I was little I was very attracted
to pretty berries and beans...and not in a healthy way.
When I lived in California, my best friend (and next-door
neighbor) and I would get together and eat those very beautiful
(and equally poisonous) pink and white castor beans. My friend
would be taken to the hospital to have her stomach pumped,
but my mother would just make me drink salt water...
So... you would have thought that when
we moved to Pennsylvania I would have been somewhat wiser...
well, it only took one more time with the dreaded salt water, and I never
touched these stunning ruby berries again!
