Don't feel sorry for this poor neglected onion. Obviously, it was past its prime for eating purposes, but was determined to use its strength to grow, even though it sat ignored on the kitchen counter.
This onion was part of a still life set-up that my friend brought over for us to paint. The other vegetables on the plate didn't catch my interest enough to paint them, but I thought this onion with its greenery had a graceful look and a lot of personality. I also liked that it could grow so much without dirt or water.
I used a dark background to give it a dramatic effect and a sense of importance. This poor onion that was so neglected has now been immortalized, which is good because I never did plant it and now it's gone forever.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
