I love red onions. Did you know that onions are a symbol of eternity?
In ancient Egypt the onion was highly revered. The bulb symbolized the universe, while its layers represented the earth's layers and heaven. They actually took their oaths on an onion bulb.
Fresh, simple and poetic, this little onion art painting is a perfect modern kitchen decor.
I painted this *alla prima kitchen painting from direct observation one morning in Umbria Italy using the direct sunlight that comes in to my window.
It is signed on the front and back with a final protective damar varnish. I use only Zecchi Firenze professional grade Italian oil paints, brushes, mediums, and canvas boards.
This painting is:
- numbered and will be sold with a Certificate of Authenticity.
- measures 5 x 7 in. / 13 x 18 cm.
- Proudly painted in Umbria Italy
Upon purchase, I'll make you a 1-2 minute video to tell you a little bit more about your painting.
