Detail

The green peppers are Anaheim Chilies which I grew. I couldn't believe how long they got, so quickly, and when I collected them, I knew they would have to be in a painting asap. I had already purchased the glowing orange and red ones so I was all set.

Except...no more small canvases. I couldn't wait so I selected an 18"canvas from my stash and set to it. Being larger, it took longer to paint, and thus a day and a half later it is presented here.

Then I decided to paint another small one later.

    I think your paintings just keep getting better. I hope you think so, too. I don't pretend to know enough about art to comment on your technique, composition, etc... I just enjoy seeing them and my favorite so far is the painting a couple days ago of the onions. It's easy enough with your talent to make the colorful fruits and vegetables beautiful but you took the humble onion and made it into something beautiful in its simplicity.

    I agree with Diane above,and I still know you could make celery look beautiful. To me it doesn't say very much colorfully..it's ribbed texture might make it interesting? I never met a celery I didn't like however.

    loved those apples - still my favourite. to me they almost look like they have been photographed. the peppers look lush and i love the colours, but i feel the background colour does not jive with the scheme of the veg.

    I love the larger pepper picture. It's the best so far. The onions were pretty good, too. With all this produce, I bet you could make a yummy stew.
