Still Life with Red Cabbages

" Cabbage Patch I "

Big, beautiful cabbages from my friend, Dick's garden. I took the photos in November after a frost. I love the muted blue-violet and red-violet colors contrasting with the yellow-greens in the grass. I used lots of glazing to create rich shadows.

I will be taking a few weeks off from painting to catch up around here (after two summer shows I am behind). Spending time with my son before he heads back to college and pulling weeds in my much neglected flower beds are top priorities. I will be teaching a workshop in two weeks and have several private students that I will be working with, too. My students keep me on my toes. I do enjoy teaching and encouraging others in their art work.

I hope you all are having a wonderful is flying by.
