Leeks and White Enamel Pot

It's taken me awhile to complete this painting. I worked on the colors of the wooden cutting board and the bottom of the leeks. It's done and I'm pleased.

My concern was how to make the bottom of the leeks interesting. I wanted the viewer's eye to roam the painting without getting stuck at the textured ends of them. Vegetables have such beautiful color and interesting shapes, I don't know why they get the short straw in painting genres.
