Acrylic on Cradled Board
Rhizome is an original abstract painting on cradled board by visual artist Shawn McNulty. This painting is is 1.5″ deep with pine edges, and ready to hang with wire on the back.
Fun Fact: The definition of rhizome is a modified subterranean plant stem that sends out roots and shoots from its nodes. Some rhizomes that are used in cooking include ginger and turmeric. Kentucky Bluegrass is a popular choice for lawns because it spreads via rhizomes underground rather than growing to seed like a fescue. The roots are not as deep which makes bluegrass more susceptible to drought. Red and green is one of my favorite complementary color combinations.
