Can you believe how swiftly the year has passed!  This is the first snowfall that has stuck to the ground here so we consider ourselves fortunate.  But could someone please explain to me why it is that winter arrives I want to paint summer images?  Am I a malcontent? Whatever it is, I do love to paint sunflowers and here's one for you from an Osoyoos garden almost ripe for harvest.  

For a long time I have wanted to paint a red onion and searching through the grocery store bin I found the perfect one:  round, spherical, unblemished with a little topknot.  I sketched and sketched, figured out how to fix the colours and off I went.  And here you are--ta da!  A red onion.

Each painting is acrylic on 8 X 8 X 1.5" wooden cradle board prepared to the finest standards.  $120 Canadian dollars. Shipping extra.
