Onions and Green Beans

(SOLD)

Finally finished this little painting!  It had been roughed in since last summer.  I sometimes get ahead of my paintings (with other paintings).  This painting reminds me of years of having gardens and the harvest that comes with it.  We raised wheat for years and when it came off for harvest so did my green beans.  I always planted too many and therefore I was overwhelmed with doing beans at that time of the year.   Finally, I guess after many open complaints of frustration, my sweet husband told me something like this one day, "Cheri, don't worry with those beans anymore.  If you just have to have fresh green beans, there are enough vegetable stands around here to keep us eating for weeks."  Right now this little painting is featured on an etsy sight that you can follow by clicking this link:

Really nice, Cheri! Your onion skins look so translucent, and I love the softness of the green beans.

Very nice color combination - greens & browns. Sometimes simplicity is stunning.

Cheri, this is a beauty! I love the different treatment of the foreground and background beans, the sheen of the onions and the overall composition. Very nicely done!

Cheri, I really like this piece. It is the perfect kitchen painting... I am sure someone will just swipe it up real quick.
