Torpedo Onions

10 x 20 oil on canvas

I found these unusual onions at the San Francisco Farmers Market, the size and shape of them just looked as though they needed to be in a painting. I finished the painting yesterday and last night one of them simply had to be included in dinner, saute'd and on top of grilled portobello mushrooms stuffed with blue cheese. Also had to include the Mission Figs in the dinner. A real starving artist dinner, eat what you paint.

  1. Oh you were in SF? I love this. You've inspired me to try painting veggies.
