Purple Onion

Purple Onion
10x10 inches on Linen Panel

I was inspired to paint this purple onion, after a trip to the market recently. I was drawn to the beautiful, deep color, as well as the delicate stem on this one, in particular. This onion spoke to me! I wanted to capture its gorgeous glow, and I'm pleased at the way it turned out. Now that the painting is done, this onion will be a gift to my neighbor.  My husband hates onions… of any color!

  6. I'm so taken with this! The color is perfect I can so feel the smooth, crispy, fragile skin of this onion. I love the translucence!

  8. Isn't interesting how the simplest of subjects makes such wonderful paintings. Hope your neighbor enjoys, my husband doesn't care for onions either very much, but we grow them so we cook with them.
