Still Life with Vase and Onions

Oil Painting for sale. 16" x 22" on linen canvas.

I have finally finished this painting. I can't believe it! It took me quite a while to complete mainly because I had to paint it in blocks due to my teaching business. I really enjoyed the process. It was such a challenge which is exactly what I need from time to time. I learned so much from this painting. Again, the smell of oil paint is intoxicating. Am I sad or what?!

It is so rewarding to finally capture those wonderful textures, from the smooth pottery, to the onions and finally the rough fabric. I really do hope that I can paint in a North facing studio one day... any sponsors out there?
