Peas and Onions

This is one more from the trip to Chicago. I hardly ever use acrylic. The transition from oil to acrylic was very frustrating when starting this painting but I think it came together in the end.

In other news, I did a quick mural for the local theater. They are doing Once Upon A Mattress, which is the story of the princess and the pea. The rest of the set looks like a castle. Painting on such a large scale was a fun challenge.


  1. Onions are one of my favorite vegetables. I love paintings of all things food. Also your painting for the play looks very inviting. Almost makes me want to be a princess. Natalie and I went to an art museum here in Atlanta and there were some neat things that I wanted to touch but Natalie said that would be a bad idea.

  2. I hear Once Upon A Mattress is really funny. My dad's university did it, but I didn't get to see it. Sad.
