Oh to have better photography skills. I'm so please with this painting but the image here just doesn't show it off.
Originally I stuffed these peppers in a square glass container to use as still life. Then I began cutting them up to pickle and this is what developed. Sometimes the most random things grab our attention.
Wow! paint is amazing. Don't you think this looks like watercolor? Nope. Oil. If somone had said "paint this with oil but in a watercolor manner" I would have shrugged and walked away. In real life it's obvious it's oil but I'm still tripping a bit over how this appears.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
