"Onion on Cloth Napkin" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

I painted this by first covering my canvas with a light wash of burnt umber (a rich brown color). While the canvas was still damp, I began to paint and the brown color mixed with each color I added. When I finished, I realized that the cloth napkin was a bit too dark so after the painting was fairly dry, I added a wash of light yellow to several areas to lighten it up.

This painting has a bit of sentimental value as the cloth napkin belonged to my grandmother, Lillian. I’m just glad I didn’t get any paint on it!

This painting is available for $50. If you’re interested, contact me at
