French Onion String
Oil on Fine Linen Panel 5 x 7 inches
This painting is on a fine linen panel panel.
There are times when a painting is just about the subject, at least for me.
Every now and again, a French farmers' market comes to our town. One stall was selling only onions and garlic, and that stall pulled me over like a magnet.
This onion string has been so carefully put together, with the little sprig of wheat at the bottom for no other reason than aesthetics. It seems so rare to find this kind of thing these days. I have a feeling it used to be more common, but that might be wishful thinking!
Either way I thought it was beautiful. And now I've finished the painting we can eat the onions, too!
Starting bid is $150
Payment is by PayPal - (although you can pay through PayPal with a credit card without having to set up an account, if you don’t have one).

The auction uses proxy bidding, which means you can set a Maximum Bid, and until that's reached, you're protected from being outbid. So if Bidder A places a Maximum Bid of $200 and Bidder B comes along to try and outbid A, A will be protected till B outbids A over $200.
You’ll be notified of any other bids and whether you’ve won the auction by email automatically. If you win the auction, I’ll send you an email with a link to pay by PayPal.
PLEASE NOTE: As the auction comes to a close, you’ll need to refresh the page to see the latest bids. It may look as if you’ve won when the countdown finishes, but you’ll only see the most recent bids if you refresh the page, so there may have been more bids that you’re not seeing!
International shipping is by UK Royal Mail International (tracked) and can take a few days to get to you. I'll let you know by email as soon as I send the painting, and give you the tracking number. I’ll need to allow some time for the painting to dry thoroughly before I send it to you. Usually, a couple of weeks will be enough.
If for any reason reason you’re not happy with your painting, you can return it to me within 14 days for a full refund. Buyer pays return shipping.
If payment isn’t made within three days of purchase, the painting will be offered to the next highest bidder or re-auctioned.
