WOW. You have really outdone yourself, here. I gasped when I opened this up. The subtle colors you've captured in those onions is astounding. Just like yesterday, this is simply exquisite. Thanks for making my day!

I gasped too and then said out loud- killer!!
Just fantastic- and as I am sitting here listening to Isserlis play Faure- what more
could I ask for!!! Wonderful devine pleasure.

This piece has such a strong classic appeal. You have managed to make the ordinary exquisite.

Linda Warner Constantino

My eyes are watering because they are so real looking. My 4 year old joked and said they were making him cry too. They're sublime. Who knew I could love an onion so?

Subtle variation and treasure of tints; ; Invitation to a sensorial and poetical voyage. Thanks Julian.

The onion soup ( a poem from Raoul Ponchon french writer 1848-1937 ):

Quel est ce bruit app�tissant
Qui va sans cesse bruissant?
On dirait le gazouillis gr�le
D'une source dans les roseaux,
Ou l'interminable querelle
D'un congr�s de petits oiseaux.
Mais cela n'est pas que je meure
Sous des gnons et sous des trognons
Si ce ne sont pas des oignons
Qui se tr�moussent dans du beurre!

This painting is extraordinary and inspiring--any chance of creating a print of it?
