Today's painting was from a photo reference, part of a larger still life set up. I did a demo a while back from the full reference, and I am thinking if I can find that piece, might pull it out and do a little tweaking for tomorrow's daily painting. I have been meaning to get back to that piece anyway.
Onions are a challenge. The goal for this piece was not to overblend. I hate that word, blend. To me it sounds make me think of obliterate. I am trying hard to keep the integrety of the brush strokes in my work. For me, staying loose is the toughest thing to do....I am working on it. I hope you are enjoying these little paintings, as much as I am enjoying doing them.

If you look at the vineyard paintings, you will see how my work has changed in the last few years. Miles of canvas brings growth, and by the end of this year, I certainly will have some miles of canvas behind me.
This piece is 5x7 oil on canvas, and is being offered for $75.
