Oil on Panel 5 x 7 inches
This painting is on an acid-free hardboard panel.
I kept this onion for some time after getting from the organic shop. They have the best fruit and vegetables for painting, because they have character - they're not selected for their uniform shape and colour.
It was already starting to sprout when I got it home, and I had a feeling that if I left it long enough it would make a interesting composition all by itself - and I think it did.
While I was working on this one I was thinking a lot about how sometimes I paint more "finished" and sometimes more broadly, even dissolving the form. Often I've decided that I'll stay at either end of the scale for good, only to find myself changing before too long.
I'm not sure I could say I was a tight or a loose painter, because I tend to end up somewhere different on the continuum between those two every time I sit down at the easel. This one is somewhere between the two extremes, but I'm not sure myself which one it's close to 🙂
Starting bid is $150

How to bid
Just click the "bid here" link above and enter your name, email (this will be kept private) and the amount you want to bid.
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.
