Green on Red

Would it be wrong to say that I think green onions are beautiful?  I mean, everyone thinks flowers are special... but what about a bundle of green onions, placed on rich red fabric?  A slim, crisp green and white scallion with that subtle fresh veggie fragrance can be a vision, and a delight to our senses.  Such beauty...  can bring tears to my eyes.

Food for thought.

Yup, onions are just as beautiful as flowers... and they taste better.

Kim, love the green onions...but then I am partial to green onions visually and culinary speaking. Well done.

I love your green onions and am glad to be introduced to your work thru DPO. These are so "cleanly" painted with great direct strokes,very nice

I love the play of the green onions against that rich red. And I feel a salad without scallions is... boring!

Yes, they are beautiful, but you made them look even better. Amazing color composition and masterful brushwork.

I agree with you about a delight to our senses. Especially with a little butter and garlic in a frying pan : ) Very nice job - striking!

I love the color combination - and the composition and the way you captured the bands around them - !
