Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Onions and garlic

Between the tissues and Fervex and Strepsils and Tokala and Aiyani, I did manage to find a spot for my watercolour palette. These are two vegetables our house is never without. Actually, that is almost all there is , except for some cheese and a drop of milk in the fridge…I’m alone for the week, so it comes down to cereal for dinner tonight.

    Hey, I am alone for the rest of the week and plan on cereal too – come on over 🙂

    Lovely sketch, it amazes me how talented artists can depict items to look much better than reality. Good enough to eat!

  9. Oh get better soon! Garlic is good for a cold, and I am sure onions are too. Love the watercolour, and coincidentally I am making garlic oil tonight.

  10. Now if I were alone I would probaby put three or four of those beautiful bulbs of garlic in the oven until the were soft and squishy and then advise everyone to stay away for at least three or four days!

    Sorry to hear you are unwell, Ronell – the garlic is the cure for that as well! Beautiful watercolours!

  13. Sounds like you need someone to bring you some chicken soup! Hope you get better very soon – lovely sketch, I love the way they tie them up in bundles.

  21. what a lot of beautiful work you’ve done since last I visited – I especially love the cape town shacks – so higgelty piggelty and the wires make it look so lived in.

  30. Thank goodness your kitchen contains garlic the cold’s greatest enemy. Your sketch is delightful Ronell.
    I’m currently enjoying “Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant” a collection of short stories which I’m sure you would really enjoy if you ever come across a copy. Perhaps you could illustrate it!
