Drum roll practice

One evening my husband was preparing dinner. On his cutting board I found a Spanish onion just cut in half. I said to Tony "look at that face in the onion! I promptly took the onions away to Tony's dismay. I found a white piece of paper, stood one half of the onion on it and lit it with a desk light. The shadow it cast looked like her dress. I photographed  both halves of the onion. Viewing the photos on the computer the characters were very obvious. This one called a "Drum Roll Practice", came about as a result of her stance and the shadow colour. All I needed to do was add the drum and broken sticks, legs and facial detail.  The colour of the artificial light helped create the atmosphere. Available  as 12 x 16 " artmounts  and as a stretched canvas 16" x 24"
