So glad I finally finished this painting. I mean you really wouldn't believe how long it took me! This is an exercise in my art class that focuses on contrast. It's also about color...which I love, but primarily it uses contrast as the main tool. The painting subject matter reminds me of the quote by Carl Sandburg:
"Life is like on onion. You peel one layer at a time and sometimes you cry."
Oils 11 x 14
Here is a tasty recipe for Onion Soup for those who are getting hungry. You might enjoy it a lot better than the painting! No crying allowed though...
