"Ode to Buechner"
12 x 9 Oil
AVAILABLE at ARNOT Museum Gala Auction
We took a week of vacation and when we returned one of our onions had sprouted. It reminded me of the late Tom Buechner and how he would paint still lifes of onions and potatoes in various stages of sprouting.
It is was fun to paint the onion and think about what Tom would say about it. He wasn't one to mince words.
I put it in the studio window yesterday when I finished it. Then a painter-friend came by with a box of frames he was giving away because he is moving to sunny New Mexico. Luckily, one was the right size.
