Untitled





























Here are my four peppers that I painted a while ago. This was when I was enjoying going back to basics and painting simple fruits and vegetables. I really enjoyed painting the peppers. While I was painting them I could smell their aroma. It felt as if I could actually smell the peppers on my paper.


I enjoy my senses (at least most of the time). I use them to gather information from the world around me and they become part of my artistic process. Then I try and express the sensations that I have experienced and I try and depict them through painting.


I'm going to frame the four of them together but I haven't come up with a name for them yet. Any ideas?

Thanks Diana. Sweet peppers? I really like it.
I'm sorry about your loosing your friend. I absolutely loved the portrait you painted of him. I think your love for him really comes through your brushstrokes.
