Vidalia Onion on Blue & Brown V

6 x 6 oil on Panel

The is the 5th, yea! yea! I was starting to get a little tired of the onion.....trying to create another set up with the same old onion was getting to be a real challenge!!! Of course this is my favorite.....the fabric is a place mat.....the wonder contrast of brown & blue plus the two different patterns makes the composition more interesting .......I'm still working on the photography....urg!!!

Vidalia Onion On Blue IV


6x6 oil on Panel
This is the 4th in my Vidalia Series.......I painted it yesterday morning but forgot to take a photograph........the blue & white background is a piece of fabric from my trip to Minnesota....found a wonderful store with lots of fabric.....I love the excitement that a piece of fabric can create in a still life. Since my last trip to Italy a couple of years ago, when I got to spend the day in a small museum with Bonnard & Matisse......it was about color and pattern.....I knew after that day I would be forever effect by pattern in my paintings.
