Still life

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!
