"Everyone Needs Roots"

Playing around with contrasting elements in this 8"x8" oil painting; cool tones (the sort of white block and blue background) vs. the warm reds and vibrant greens vs. the grayed reds in the beets, and the large negative space vs the compressed space in the focal area. I cropped the veggies which I normally do not do in a still life but decided that it helps express the larger-than-life theme.
