Red onion, eye, tears, surreal

What's So Sad About A Big Red Onion? 5x7 on canvas panel


This red onion was so gorgeous and so luminous, I was hesitant to paint it. Didn't know if I could do it justice. The eye is from looking in the mirror, and the tear, well tears are so wonderfully kitsch, I just had to do it. The idea of onions/tears appeals to me; this is the second teary onion one I've painted.

Hey T, I'm so LOVING all these new ones! That tear is perfect in the onion painting!

How big is your other WIP? You said it was larger, but maybe I missed the size?

Keep on keepin' on!
