8" x 8"

Well, I started another little painting today (not yet finished, but I will tonight).  I know, I know . . . I've got other paintings I still need to finish (poor Tomatoes!) so why am I dilly-dallying with a new one?  I don't know.  I guess I'm just an ADHD painter.  :)

So this little ditty is about 8"x 8" and is part of the Rookie Challenge website.  Check it out if you haven't already.  I've never done one before, but I liked the plastic wrap on this one and have never painted an onion before.  And just so you know I'm not totally slacking, I'm in the middle of designing and building a website for a friend of mine, so that's another reason why I haven't done much painting in the past couple days.  Ok . . . enough excuses.  It's almost dinner time.  Have a good night.


  1. This is a great painting, I love the colors you chose.

  2. Thank you. I think I ended up overworking it. It needed more dark values, but I went a little nuts. This stage had a spontaneous quality to it that I really liked, but ended up killing. :) I have a tendency to do that. I'm still learning. Would like to maintain that fresh quality but also reach the proper values. Practice, practice, practice I guess. Thanks again for the kind comment Maria.


Thank you so much for commenting!
