the beet goes on

Toni Johnson Mendina's avatar Toni Johnson Mendina

The beets GROW on! This textile drawing is another piece in my growing series of vegetable art. Part drawing/ part quilt, the artwork is made from my own technique of fusing and stitching together layers of fabric, then applying layers of colored pencil to give the beets a realistic look. Untamed thread details work their way down the artwork just as real beet roots would!
