Time to get back in the saddle after a long holiday season. I always take the month to help out in the family retail business, which is fun but doesn't leave much..any!.... time for painting. After playing around yesterday with colors just to remember what the heck to do with them, I grabbed some greens from the fridge. I was desperate for a subject! Although these look very carroty, it's Swiss chard, destined for the blender to make green smoothies.
