Red Onion and Garlic
Oil on Panel 5 x 7 inches
This painting is on an acid-free hardboard panel.
I actually went out looking for flowers to paint, but found this onion in the organic shop around the corner. I think it was the beautiful purples and reds against the green shoot that drew me, sometime syou want to paint something just because it’s beautiful as it is.
The shop owner did try to get me to buy a different, to his credit, because this one had already gone squishy and was on the way out - that’s organic for you. It took a bit of explaining before he understood why I wanted this particular one out of all of them!
I’m afraid the buyer of this painting may have to wait a little longer than usual until it’s posted, the paint is very thick in places.
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.
