Farm Fresh

The Saturday farmers' market at Waxahachie, on the side
of the county courthouse, a great place to buy fresh
produce, delicious bakery goods and home made soaps.

I did this painting yesterday at the quick draw at Waxahachie. It was so windy and I just wasn't in the mood to paint buildings so I bought a bundle of red onions, a container of yellow squash, and one of patty pan squash at the farmers market and set up a still life to paint. It was a nice change. My friend Sheri Jones bought some fresh flowers and carrots and created a very colorful still life also.


  1. I really like this, Doug!! Nice composition.

    I read about the wind on Sheri's blog and kudos to all who painted that day!!

  2. You did a beautiful job on this still life, Doug! The blue background really sets it off. Beautiful texture on those red onions.
