Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.

" A Plethora of Peppers"
"A Plethora of Peppers" 5 x 7 Oil on Panel $55 Just love those waxy, shiny peppers! They just make you want to smile! It's the cheerful colors. Every time I buy a bag full, I sit around admiring them more than I do eating them!And I love the green background to make the colors pop. Believe it or not, I gave considerable thought on composing this composition. See the big guy on the left? He leads your eye into the center red one. This painting in number 17..we are moving right along!
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
