Radicchio


The field at Full Circle Farm with, from left to right, green cabbage, radicchio, escarole, red cabbage, a single row of red lettuce and green lettuce. Maybe another brassica like cabbage on the far right. I wanted to show the mixed farming that is healthier for land and crops than massive mono cultures of big ag. It also produces a beautiful patchwork of delicious colors. This is 12 inches and was painted outside.


While we were down in the field Jessica picked this young radicchio for me and I took it home to my studio to paint. I can eat it now that it has been recorded!
