The Art of Grey Duck Garlic
At Grey Duck Garlic we enjoy expressing our artistic side. Since one of our main goals is having fun, we each decide what creative areas we want to work on for the Grey Duck Garlic website.
Jane and I (Susan) never grew out of coloring with crayons so we create the website artwork. I designed the header and our logo. I like playing with the colors on the website. It is an endless source of frustration to me that no two browsers show colors the same!
I enjoys the interaction between hand drawn artwork and computer artwork. Basically I believes that art should reflect your fun and creative side and not be taken too seriously. Of course, it is hard to take yourself too serious when almost every picture you draw contains garlic. It's not like many museums have a Garlic Wing. "A hush comes over the group as they approach Van Gogh's famous painting 'Still Life with Bloaters and Garlic'."
There is some precedence for working with garlic in art.

Patty has taken many of the beautiful photographs we use on the web and our brochures. Since she has gone back to college I have taken over most of the photos. The hardest part is sneaking up on the prey..um..garlic growers to get those elusive action photos.
Of course, there is a limit to the number of different ways you can portray weeding and still make it 'fresh' and exciting (that limit may be one). We've thought of ways to make it 'sexy' but decided that they weren't suitable for a family friendly website (as well as being potentially itchy for the models).
Edna and I write the articles for the website with loads of creative input from Jane on what garlic growers want to learn about.
We hope that you enjoy browsing through our art in our website!
