Oil on Canvas Panel, 6x6 -- Commission
Painting #3 of a 5-painting commissioned series is one of the most indispensable ingredients in my kitchen: a head of garlic. This particular model will join several more for an indescribably delectable garlic soup. I first discovered this unsung pleasure while dining at a Spanish restaurant in the gaslight district of San Diego sixteen years ago. Though my attempts at recreating it were futile at first, I happened upon a recipe in a cookbook that is close--complete with a fried egg in the broth! Heavenly.
