I played the memory of my parents singing the song, "Lonely Little Petunia in the Onion Patch" as I painted this onion. They sang in the car—nowhere else. It was like a safe haven from the daily noise of a family, as we traveled from our home to our cousins' on Sundays.
9" x 12"
Oil on canvas panel
I painted the background without purple, but added it after the golden onion begged for the complement to make it pop.
This painting can be seen in my gallery on Dailypaintworks
.com where it is also for purchase.
