The Humble Onion

I had a little painting session with some friends today. While they chose to do landscape paintings of the area, I chose the humble onion, three of them. My friend's husband is a wonderful gardener and here in South Florida this is the harvest season while the rest of the country seems to be just thinking of planting things. He had an abundance of onions, and they are an interesting subject with their dried tops and papery skins.


  1. Oh this is pretty! Never knew onions could be so nice. Great job.

  2. Great job on the onions, honestly sometimes the most humble thing is so enjoyable to paint!

  3. You are right, we don't have to look far for inspiration if we open our minds to it. Thanks.
