Daffodils in Ginger Jar

Daffodils in Porcelain Jug

Oil painting of many yellow daffodils in a blue and white porcelain jug.

I painted a fair bunch of flowers,
Lit up by electrical power.
In a jug they were placed
With stems interlaced,
And it took me a couple of hours.

Daffodils in Blue Castor Oil Bottle

Oil painting of three yellow daffodils in a blue castor oil bottle.

Onion

Oil painting of a brown onion in front of a green background.
There once was an onion of brown,
Who was pulled from his home underground;
Afeared of a fate
On the gastronome's plate,
He hitchhiked his way out of town.
