“Life is like an onion. You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.” Carl Sandburg

I love painting food. I study each piece and then give it a go. My eye roves over the vegetable and I’m in complete awe of its complexities. I say if you want to find the Divine then look no further than your own kitchen. Sometimes, when I need a good cry, I go to the kitchen and peel onions, toss them into a pot with olive oil and start a soup. I soon realize that Life is indeed, like an Onion.
