Spring Onions with Rubber Band

Spring Onions with Rubber Band - oil on panel - 12"x9" - sold

Bought these gorgeous enormous spring onions at the local farmers market here in the village of Ballyvaughan. The variety of textures and the deep reds and green colours made for a great subject to paint.

Went for a couple of pints last night in the local pub and met Steven Spielberg! It was a bizarre and great experience.
He is here in Ballyvaughan on a creative writing course ran by the poet and philosopher David Whyte who is running lectures in the College.

Tonight Declan O' Rourke is playing an intimate concert in the college exhibition space.
Hope Steven has got his ticket already! Can't wait for the gig. - Richard
