I have always been visually drawn to the rhubarb plant because of the color and textures of its stalks and foliage. Rhubarb, as a result, has been the subject of two of my paintings. As the snow melted in my garden, rhubarb immediately began to push its way though the near frozen soil. From a distance, I noticed the buds of orange against the dark dead debris of last year’s plant, and took my camera over to investigate. Here is a close-up of the rhubarb I saw.
