"Eat Your Veggies"

"Eat Your Veggies" work in progress, 24"h x 18"w, oil, ©Jill Banks 2012
I'm not sure about the title. There's so much going on in today's still life demo, words escape me.

It was the first day of the Fall term and a rowdy one at that ... filled with very cheery people happy to be back to painting class.

"Eat Your Veggies" is a work in progress. It's sopping wet with paint built up over the session. Hopefully, I can get back to it before the vegetables start growing something.

I happen to love the setup -- with its color combinations and the sense of depth created by the placement of objects, the frame and reflections in the glass behind.
