6x8in oil on canvas SOLD
Number 3 for 30 of 30. 27 to go - yikes!
For the first time it occurred to me why they call this
a cauliflower. I have never painted one before
and it kept reminding me of a hydrangea. I found I
kept putting more color in because white and green
did not make me the happiest artist on the planet.
I also found it very difficult to keep it loose and yet look like
what it is...a big creamy blob surrounded by green.
The person who bought the cabbage piece asked to see
this one before I posted it, and wants it as a companion piece.
Loving vegetables - Parsnips anyone!
