Location: New England, United States

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Don't shed tears....

The Onion(8x10, oil, SOLD)
Okay, I know, this was to be the trilobite...but, I'll get to that, promise. This is an onion I did in about 25 minutes. 8x10 inches, I wanted the challenge of painting all those translucent layers. I don't like to eat these kind of onions, I'm into the "Bermuda" onions which have that purple color on the outside of the layers(but I will paint one of those to be an equal-opportuntity painter, trust me, so that no onion goes offended). SOmetimes when I see the state of the world, I make an allegory of how it's all like an onion...peeling it back layers at a time and trying not to shed tears. Wow. Did I just get profound?

Very lovely golden onion. I'm a Vidalia gal myself (much sweeter than those Bermudas).

Beautiful onion. You really captured the layers of dry skin.
