Captain Kirk! There's a strange new life form approaching the ship...

This early rhubarb is surreal. I am not satisfied that my painting has captured its sensuousnes fully so I may try another painting. Wow. What colours. What shapes and textures! Kind of creepy.


  1. Jean, did you check out my two part series on my rhubarbs? They have their own special lables...

  2. When I saw your images I thought to myself, "my rhubarb doesn't look as bizarre as hers." So I went right outside and of course it looked every bit as freaky as yours. What I love about the plant is the way the stems turn neon red when the sun is at a certain point in the sky.
