Still Life w/ Beets, 40x30

This still life is deceptively large...but the 40x30 size gives each element significant impact. I love beets...the color, the starchy stems, the large leaves, and this leaf wanted to be important in this painting. Perhaps I should de-emphasize the vegetables to push the focus to the leaf? It's a possibility...or just paint another composition and try to soften/lose edges on all but the leaf.
does anyone have a thought about this?
