TEMPTATION OF PETER RABBIT, 12X16, Original Oil

This is not really one of my daily paintings..it's a gallery piece.  As you can see I couldn't think of a title, so I am open to any and all suggestions.  Help me out, please!

Purchase here
$325.
The new title is noted above, thank you Cindy Michaud, for an excellent suggestion.

Wow you've made the humble cabbage into an artwork, so beautiful. Title suggestions - 'Humble Rose' 'Blue Brassica'

Karen Bruson said...

This is so gorgeous. Love the colors, texture and translucence.

Lovely piece. As it seems to be both avoiding the light and holding back some secret thought as it purses its cabbage lips, I suggest the title "Pensive". It almost looks as though it might finally consent to laugh. Thanks for a great painting, Carol!

Splendid cabbage portrait! I can see why you're stumped for a title.
Cabbage in Green
It's Not Easy Being Green
Rabbit Food
It's a Cabbage
Cole Slaw to Be
To Be or Not To Be Cole Slaw

I give up.

How about "Audrey" in honor of the plant in Little Shop of Horrors? ;-) Just kidding, it's beautiful.

Carol DeMumbrum said...

Love it! It has the feel of a watercolor painting.

An excellent painting Carol.

En admirant votre peinture qui est subliment bien travaillée et j'en apprécie les couleurs, une petite anecdote me revient soudainement.
Je ne sais pas qui avait pu dire à l'un de mes jeunes fils, alors qu'il avait environ 3 ou 4 ans que les enfants naissaient dans les choux. Lorsque son père est rentré du travail pour le repas de midi, il lui annoncé promptement qu'il allait avoir un petit frère! Mon mari et moi nous nous étions regardé avec étonnement. "si, si, viens voir dans le frigo il y a un choux!". Malgré nos explications, ce fut bien difficile les jours suivants de lui faire manger "le fameux petit frère"!...
Cela pourrait être le titre de votre toile!

Le choux?

This is just stunning, Carol! Divine colors and I love how it fills the canvas and draws you in...

Bisous,

Kim Blair said...

Love all the grayed greens and tones of purple in this painting... and the veining too!

Gorgeous Carol, love the temperature changes from cool to warm. Nice composition also.

Shirley Fachilla said...

This is the essence of the thing, and the thing is a cabbage. I vote for "Cabbage." You've made it beautiful; it should be proud to be known for just what it is.

Debbi Smith Rourke said...

Have to join the chorus us. Just wonderful

Diane Hoeptner (hep-ner) said...

Ooh, Diana said it "Humble Rose" I love that. You do amazing paintings of green veggies, Carol!

Susan E. Roden said...

Everyone has voiced my sentiments Carol - Lovely!

Kim VanDerHoek said...

I had no idea that cabbage could be ethereal. Wow!

I love the story Peter Rabbit, I used to listen to it on tape - sometimes I still do!!! I'd definately fall into this trap!
