It's Visual Arts Festival time again at the Bakersfield Museum of Art. This year the theme is "Roots" with the size of each entered piece not to exceed 8x8inch. Every year I try to submit the maximum of 3 pieces with the hopes that one will make it in the show. I risked the odds this year and only had time to submit one piece. I like food....and eating.... and painting food I am about to eat. For this years festival, I went with the very literal edible root. This photo is of the work in progress. I turned in the finished piece last Monday, and in fear that I would miss the deadline, had no time to snap the final finished shot. The opening for this show will be held at the BMOA on May 14th at 6pm.
