Bubble Glass and Onion

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Haven't posted in awhile cause I've not been up to painting; have allergy/cold symptoms that have made me really tired. Sometimes I try and paint when I'm not well and just end up throwing it out, so might as well just give in!
The image I've posted is the set up that I used in my watercolor DVD demo. I just ran out of prints that I have of it but wanted a friend who doesn't have a mac to see it so I thought of posting it here. Guess this is as good time as any to plug the DVDs and book (sent my first order to Israel a couple of weeks ago!). The book is $25 and DVDs are $35 plus shipping.
Hope to get back to painting soon and have something to post.

Ponytail Onion

Wasn't sure whether to call this Ponytail Onion (which makes it feminine and I suppose self-reflective) or Phillip Pearlstein Onion which would allign it with some art history. I did see one of his paintings at The National Academy School and Museum yesterday so I may have been influenced by how he treats skin.

Happy Halloween

Looked like a pumpkin almost as much as an onion. Guess we are influenced by holidays as much as anything else.
