The basket went from brown to orange to yellow. The original idea was just lettuce, but it needed colour, so reds and oranges started to echo the red and white cloth in the foreground. I wanted the background to be simple, and had a wonderful time painting panels of grey and white. I suddenly thought of grey lettuce to blend in, and not interrupt the composition.
Each canvas continues around the corners with images linked to the painting. Frames are not required.
