When I was a preschooler I called all the leafy greens in my mother's garden lettuce—until the lesson.  She had me compare the colors, rub their leaves, smell them, listen to them squeak against themselves and finally taste that stinky pre-slaw taste of raw cabbage.  I learned the difference.

This was my first sponged painting of something other than a flower.  What fun to use a variety of reds and greens where I normally would have glazed oranges and yellows.  

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Daily Paintworks Auction.  

Please also be aware, that my hosts on Daily Paintworks, Carol and David Marine, have lost their home and Carol's studio to a wildfire this past week in a suburb of Austin, Texas.  Keep them in your good thoughts as they struggle to recover from this tragic event.
