Sprouts - Garlic Still Life, Pastel

I picked up this little box of garlic at Walmart.  When I got home and opened it up, the garlic had started to sprout.  Must have been there for awhile, eh?  It just looked like a small pastel painting to me.  I like painting still life as you are painting from the real items and not from a photo.  Very good for the "eye".

Sprouts, 7 x 5 inches, pastel on Pastel Artist Panel
This small pastel landscape is against the glass, taped and framed in a dark mahogany wooden photo frame to hang on the wall or sit on a table.  

This little pastel is in a private collection in Venice, Florida.
