The 6th Yellow Onion

The 6th Yellow Onion
8×8 oil on canvas “Deadly Vapors”


This my be my favorite onion to date. It has so many colors happening in it. It may be that I just love a good transformation. I seriously hated this painting to begin with. It was a cartoon circus onion when I was just starting it out, but the more I worked on it, the better it looked. Photos of this painting in progress can be seen on my Instagram account and it is available for sale on Etsy. Prints of this painting is also available on Redbubble.

I apologize if I haven’t been very present lately. I was on a vacation in New York for two weeks and the cell service was exceptionally spotty and unreliable. Which meant my blog and Instagram got a little mixed up and behind. While I did somehow manage to mostly keep up, the auto post feature on my blog didn’t work for some reason so I had to post manually. That frustration on top of a cross county drive and general vacation fun/frustrations mean I’m very glad to be home.




Things haven’t exactly slowed down since I’ve been home though. We made a little detour on the way back and picked up an adorable distraction. Whisky, a 9-week old German Shorthaired Pointer, is the newest addition to the family. My husband and I have been looking at getting another dog for two years. The stars aligned so we couldn’t resist. He’s a bit of a handful right now with chewing on everything and peeing everywhere so it has been a serious struggle to find time in the studio. With the kids going back to school soon and getting the puppy trained, I should be able to get back to work at least in small doses.
