What do you do when you want to paint from life and you don't have children around 24/7 as school attendance is considered important these days? Well you do a still life. I bought a beautiful orchid and some pretty produce at the grocery store. That beautiful orchid is in that orange pot. I think I painted a couple of leaves... I took this reference photo to post on here.
The onions were stealing the show and I went with it. I had this cool vintage fabric from my mother and I liked how it blended with the onions but was such a different texture.
Coulter thought I should paint pomegranates instead of onions. He likes eating those better.
I will paint that orchid yet!
