    I love tomato gravy Linda, sometimes with onions but I will try this recipe, the wine added sounds good as well. The painting of course is spot on, you are doing well.

    Now there’s a lady who knows her onions – or has someone already come up with that one? Colours, form and shadows, all so perfect it brings tears to my eyes Linda.

    I really like this painting Linda…I do many paintings of onions and the onion family and a lot are posted here, so this is like coming home….I love the way you have them posed casually with each other and the great sheen on the skins…red onions are delicious too.

  • thank you Janis was not sure what to paint yesterday so was getting a bit frustrated …glad I tried the onions as I found it easier than what I thought it would be..i use a lot of the red ones in salads. Glad you like this one.
