Artist's Description

W&N watercolours on Bockingford 300gsm
Fruit in a bowl on my kitchen table (Tarlton, South Africa)
Link to my calendar Still Life
I am thinking of the onion again.  … Not self-righteous like the proletarian potato, nor a siren like the apple. No show-off like the banana. But a modest, self-effacing vegetable, questioning, introspective, peeling itself away, or merely radiating halos like ripples.
-  Erica Jong, Fruits and Vegetables, 1971
Inspired by all the still life paintings here on RB, here’s another still life, and I think I’m starting to enjoy this! I scoured the cupboards and the refrigerator for inspiration and all I could come up with was an onion, a rather bedraggled yellow pepper and two apples. Mother Hubbard’s cupboard was rather bare! The bowl belongs to a friend who brought a salad over for a braai (barbecue) we had a while back.
