I love red onions, their colour and different shapes never stop to intrigue me!

White Grapes


6x8
oil on canvas board

It is harvest time in Stellenbosch, South Africa and grapes are in abundant supply! These white ones are very yummy, easier to eat than to paint....

Two Aubergines


9x12
oil on canvas

I love painting aubergines, I truly love their colour and sheen!
With these ones I was lucky enough to find them with quite a bit of a stem, which is hairy and rough, a lovely contrast!

50's blue glass with lime


6x8
oil on canvas board

It took me ages to find an interesting composition for the lime!
In the end I discovered again those old real 50's tumblers at the back of the kitchen cupboard and immediately was hooked and fully enjoyed this painting.......

White Onions



9x12
oil on canvas

"White Onions" belongs to my neverending series of vegetables for the gallery!
It started all very harmless with a small commission three years ago, but foodlovers all over the world have been buying these "Kitchen Paintings" ever since and I keep on painting....
Unfortunately the photo doesn't do any justice to the original.

I must admit that I munched myself through packets of these sweeties to find the right ones to paint! Pretty addictive!!!
