Sliced Onion

Sliced Onion, 2007, oil on canvas, 6 x 6 inches
I have to thank my roommate for this painting. I had been thinking all day as to what was I going to paint, and by the time I got home I still had no clue. As I looked over the kitchen counter there it was, a left over onion half from his dinner. This would be the first time I paint an onion that has been chopped, sliced, or cut. I usually tend to keep my subjects whole, and this was a good chance to step away from that. I also loved the outer skin that remained from the missing half. Once the painting was done my roommate claimed it for himself, and since it was his onion I painted I accepted his wish and let him keep it.
