Hmmmm.... Ragu....yum!!! I look forward to your blog daily...and enjoy your paintings so' much Julian. Chit
Great, Julian! I think onions are under-appreciated subject since they are so familiar, but their subtle blushes of color and that wonderful papery quality make them more than worthy to paint. That's what I love about your still life studies - you capture the beauty that might be missed in the everyday.
Like two christmas baubles,full of flavour and scent,deliriously happy,the two glowing friends are still enjoying the day...Until the head chef arrives!
just too good to be cut up for that onion tart. well done.
Julian: That onion painting brought tears to my eyes. Tears of joy! So simple. So beautiful.
I love your grayed backgrounds of late!! And this one is a beauty!!! Bless you and yours!
