Do you remember that song by Susan Christie, "I Love Onions"? I used to have a Looney Tunes album (not the cartoon) when I was a kid, and that song was on there. I loved that album! My favorites on that album were "They're Coming to Take Me Away", "Hellow Mudduh, Hellow Fadduh", "Shaving Cream", "The Witch Doctor" and my all time favorite was "The Streak" by Ray Stevens!
For some crazy reason I had this image of an onion in my head and I really wanted to paint it, so that's what I did! Through much of this painting though, that silly little onion song kept playing over
and over in my head and I kept thinking about that album. I would love to listen to that again!
"I don't like shoes that pinch your toes,
Or people who squirt you with a garden hose,
But, mmm, I love onions."
"Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot.
Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot. Yeah!"
