West Buckland Festival – painting exhibited called ‘Onions’

Onions

The picture above is of my painting exhibited in ‘The Gallery’ of the West Buckland Festival

I very rarely get inspired to paint these days but I saw a painting by Renoir entitled ‘Onions’ at the Royal academy last week and decided to give it a go.

My painting ‘Onions’ is nothing like the Renior but… The skin of the red onions were iridescent like the back of a beetle, shimmering and layered in colour.

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
