Yes it's a cabbage and it is my latest painting.  I have been working on this at Gallery 150 in Leamington Spa.  I still have a little more to do with it, it doesn't have any shaded bits yet or highlights plus I have to tidy up some of the rough edges.  I have only used 2 colours and they are sap green and alkyd white (oh a little bit of raw umber on that small amount of background you can see).

Below is a photograph that I took today, it is the hand of a former squadie,  I think it speaks volumes but you might not agree.

A pomegranate with the start of a label on it.  I am told it's the food of the Gods, I quite like that.  Looks a bit like a red onion at the moment though so I will have to do a little more work on it. 

Had some brilliant news this week, I entered a painting (the one below) into The Rugby Open 2011 and it got accepted.  That is the third year in a row that I have had work accepted in there and I feel very honoured, they always make my year just lately.
