Love those colors, that limey yellow and the thick white paint on the ends. Very cool composition too.

Beautiful array of onions, fresh and ready for purchase... Take your camera when you go to Paris and I will direct you to some amazing markets... You will have material for your art for years to come, people and produce!

Bises,

This is so nice! I really like the blues and blue-greens you've used -- and the thick white paint! Great harmony!

Oo, lovely. Chop chop chop. It must be Spring...I can smell them. Time for an omelet - out into the garden for goodies! Oh. It's February. Everything is still brown muck. Sigh.

Thanks for a nice fresh painting! I know little about technique but I liked the white too - it feels crisp and crunchy. It's quite something, the way paint can add expression more powerfully than a photograph that way. The way we see the world is most complex - painting is a language process, I guess, just like poetry.

I call these shallots in Australia. I love using them in cooking. You've captured them really well. They do tend to flop and curve a bit.

Tomatoes, cabbages, onions... your ability to turn produce into beautiful art simply amazes me.
The color, compostion and impasto are grand.

The similarity is evident! The colours definately grabbed my attention, as did the quantity of bundels.

I also love the shape and colour of your mug!!! Perfect for my 'bucket' of tea I drink at night!!!
