This is a 12" x 12" oil painting on cradled masonite panel. This is an award winning work in a national competition, 2014 Georgia Morgan Show at LAC here in Lynchburg Virginia. It was 2nd best in show. It depicts the three commons onions found in most kitchens today.

It's always interesting to hear an artist's journey, so I offer mine up for your review. Being an artist started very early for me. At 6 years old, my friend (Daniel D.) had extraordinary art skills. Coming from a famous artistic family, he had a great deal of positive reinforcement to produce art. I remember the beautiful beach scene he made for us in school with crayons. Blue skies, crashing waves, sea gulls in the air... I remember Daniel, tongue extended to the corner of his mouth, crayon pushed to the limit, extracting every ounce of color onto the paper as he mashed the wax down with each scumble. He had a vision and needed no preliminary outlines. Lot's of times his crayons broke (you weren't supposed to do that in those days), but at the end of the day, he was a 6 year old wonder. He was my inspiration way back then...I wanted to learn just how to do that! So I did.
