Harvesting the Carrot in the Midwest

I finished Harvesting the Carrot in the Midwest!  The carrot is harvested in the Midwest from July to November.  It is time to be more connected to our carrots and their growth!  This work is 48 x 58 inches (though the size can vary depending on how it is installed) and is made of watercolor on paper, jute, burlap, and fabric.

They grow in a variety of shapes and sizes.  It is always a surprise when I pull one from the ground.  And although one might seem a bit strange, it tastes just as good as an average one!

  1. Haha this piece makes me feel better about the fact that our carrots NEVER seem to come out normal looking.
