"Peeling" --- SOLD



I broke another of my rules today - I painted an onion. It's not a rule so much as just a ... ok, so awhile back I painted a string of onion paintings, and none of them sold in auction. I was frustrated, and my husband suggested that onions weren't terribly pleasing subject matter, and that maybe I shouldn't paint them anymore. But, apparently I couldn't resist. And just to prepare you, I painted an extra one today, and, you guessed it, it's an onion also. :)

This is lovely Carol. I am surprised they didn't sell. I would love them in my kitchen. They are so essential and make great subject matter. Besides, these dont smell!

Remember: Onions are like Ogres. :D

Hopefully with the Shrek movie released recently, this one will be better appreciated.

I like the red underpainting bleeding through.

Carol, Your work looks great. I was sorry to see that you said onions don't sell. I just painted three of them too! Oh well, I loved painting them. vincefazio.blogspot

these onions are waaay exciting! I see they've long since been snapped up by some savvy buyers.
