#17 - One Year/100 Paintings - Tomatillos - 6 x 4 Acrylic on canvas board. This was another one of the vegetables that we've never eaten that I picked up at the grocery store to use as a painting subject. I took a photo of the tomatillos to use for my painting before cooking them up in a side dish of Tomatillo Rice. Both Brenda and I felt the dish to be a little overbearing, but not horrible to eat. I found the rice was better cooked up the next morning with scrambled eggs and melted cheese.
