This piece should be finished and framed in time for the "Art at Marrett" show this weekend. I'm calling this one Onion: Past Her Prime. More and more, I am inspired by the undeniable beauty of things that are slightly worn, over-ripe, chipped, patched, or gone-to-seed. You have to admit, for an onion that a few days later, went to her final rest in the compost, she's looking quite striking here!
Appropriately, the upcoming show is in the barn at the historic Marrett House in Standish, Maine. I will be happily surrounded by antiquity!
