|"Cabbage and Pepper", oil on panel, 8x8, Grand Gallery|
Another recent still life with a beautiful cabbage. Who knew that a cabbage could be so beautiful?

I like painting these little still lifes, especially with such ordinary subject matter. They feel down to earth and rustic like something you would find in a French market.

For the past three weeks on Thursday mornings, us Six Women Painters, have been gathering at Patti's studio to do some still life painting together. The idea was to throughout a theme, set up a still life and paint! This is a great alternative to plein air painting, esp. in the really cold temperatures we have had here in Michigan. This is the painting I did last week...I will post yesterday's painting tomorrow!

I like how this painting looks. It has a warm, earthy, country French appeal. I popped it in a wide plein air frame with a dark espresso finish and it looks great!
