Sweet potatoes

I threatened to break out my paints this last weekend... and I did.

But I didn't paint koi. I just wasn't happy with the strangely blurry forms of the fish beneath the water, so I went with something else I like: sweet potatoes.

This is a little 8 x 10" piece done in acrylic on Masonite. I haven't painted in almost a year, ever since Stupefying Stories rejected my ill-fated Halloween cover last year. Cornball humor was apparently not on the menu. That wasn't really the reason I haven't been painting, however. It's been all I can do to keep up with writing and gardening.

And on the gardening side of things, actual, non-painted sweet potatoes and their accompanying vines continue to flood over the edge of their beds and take over broad swaths of my yard.

In November, I'll go sweet potato prospecting. I love doing that.

Anyone have anything amazing going on in their gardens this week?
