'Asparagus, Peppers, and Mushrooms' by Botanical Art by Diane De Roo
The third in this series showcases the vivid red of the chilli peppers. The elegant green asparagus nod towards each other in a subdued dance and the striking shape and colour of the portobello mushrooms finish the piece. The red, green and black theme works well with any colour scheme, making this an excellent piece to give as a gift.
This piece is individually handcrafted from preserved vegetable slices that I create using organic vegetables grown in my home garden. I carefully enhance each vegetable by hand to retain their vibrant colours for years to come. They are mounted on a textured, cream coloured background, double matted, and framed in a simple elegant black frame under glass. They come ready to hang.
As is the nature of botanicals, no two are ever exactly alike and your piece will vary slightly from the one pictured.
