I am Garlic, 12" x12", oil on canvas, 2009. I loVe garlic. Ate it raw like an apple as a kid. Grew it in the garden to encourage the roses. Garlic emits a sulfer substance in the soil the roses enjoy. When my kids were younger, we made the "One and Only Garlic Spaghetti" when there were State Occasions such as, an Open House, an award, a performance or Science Fair at school. We ate a whole lot of garlic, still do!
