Kitchen Art #3 from the French Print House

An irresistible play on words that was not resisted. It would seem so, but there is some small piece of reasoning behind the word play. The etymology of the word onion reveals the Latin noun “unio, unionis” as a possible derivation and the Latin noun “unio” translates into English as “a single large pearl”. With that in mind, together with the blue of the string and strands of “hair”, I was drawn inexorably to choose “The Pearl with an Onion Earring” as the title of this, the third in my new series of Kitchen Art giclée prints.

All the details and prices can be found at The French Print House.

    Australia Day Long Weekend ahead fearing the weather arriving from the west, all-time heat records having been broken today in Adelaide at past 46C ! So, tape in hand, shall we go ‘shucking’ three times in a row for the dining-room or enjoy the ‘slaw’ at the entry , , , 🙂 ?
