Beautiful! Astonishing details, and the catalyst for a wonderful memory of my Dad (who I lost in 2004), who loved spring onions, used to eat them raw, and put them in practically everything. Thank you for the portal to that lovely memory.

Gorgeous and the red band makes the whole thing sing!

Glorious salad time!! Succulent and ready to mix with the best of greens. Love the lighting!! Happy Valentine's to all! Cl-Marie

Ooh, I love this one. Love the hanging off the edge..well, I love the whole thing!

Don't need the "word" spring. Your painting says spring from those lively little rootlets to the sharp green stems. Wonderful color and contrast.

the tautness of the rubber band reminds me of a show seen recently on Nova, regarding a possible lost work by Da Vinci. the shows details the masterful way in which he would form a ribbon around a girl's head.

Hmm... vegetable bondage?

Amazing, amazing, amazing.

Beautiful. I can smell them. You just get better & better . Amazing !

Unbelievable. I love everything about this one. I agree, each painting seems to get better ... and yet, how on earth can you get better. Amazingly beautiful.

An erotic vision of a humble bunch of vegetable so evocative for me of a painting of Gustave Courbet and one of Edouard Manet,both together "living" their beaming lives in the museum of Orsay...

Fabulous! I love the red band; brings the whole thing to life but also the light you've brought to some of the root tips! Love it!

I just love this piece, the red note is masterful!
