"Tears for Captain Onion" Lady Ship Sea TBARTS

"Tears for Captain Onion" 5x7 acrylics on Everlast panel
Inspired by Carol Marine's onion paintings, I decided to try my hand at onions. So I slipped one into my Funny Hat series. Then I added the ship, then the tear, and lo! a story seemed to loom on the horizon.

Her dress is done like an onion, and the earring and the moon echo the onion theme. I did find the onion challenging to paint, but it sure was fun and I'm ready to go again. I'm planning one with a red onion.

/sniff/ It is just SOOO loverly.

The absurdity leaked through and made me sniffle a little. But, the painting IS very nice. Thanks for sharing. I have NO idea how many you do that are not shared. I'm just happy you choose to share some with us.

Thanks Rick! I share most of them, except for the ones I paint over, didn't complete, were a stalemate between me and the canvas. Every artist has their...share...of those!! :^)
