Balancing Act - a vegetable still life

18x12 inches watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press block. Drawn from my fresh vegetables I placed on the side of an overturned mosaic sunflower vase, I placed in a sunny south window and painted wet on dry. Patterns you see beneath are those of glass shards and a metal cross embedded in another mosaic (it is the top of an antique gurney). Top left is the side of a Talavera pottery garden pot.
