Onion



oil on gessobord, 5 x 5 inches
This painting will be up for auction at the North Berkshire Creative Arts' Art for Art's Sake Auction

To me, this time of year is about onions as much as anything else. Sautéed, they release their sweet flavor. I use them for a base for butternut squash soup. It's especially good with a grated granny smith apple thrown in. Mmmmm.

Thanks, everyone -- it is so cold right now on my porch and yet so convenient. It will be interested to see what wins out this winter, my need for immediate gratification or my need for heat! Well, for now, it's making for an interesting experience . . . I am making quick choices and changing my brushes much less often.

Your painting is fabulous (although any fresh fruit or vegetable would be wonderful right now), but you can not complain it is cold. We had one warm day in the neg 20s, but the rest of the time it has been neg 30s and neg 40s! I agree with Lisa, get a space heater, I have a relationship with mine.

Yowza David - your butternut squash soup is to die for (the painting's not bad either)! Let me know when it's on the stove and I'll walk on up the hill :>)

Send your cousin a care package to warm her up in the Antarctic!

Love,MIL
