A bit of summer heat stored up in this painting. The subject was dried and placed in the box. This is a playful painting… the little pepper was freshly picked and really quite cute. So I painted ‘er up just in time to take down to the Cathy Boyd Fine Art Gallery in Midland. Cathy is one of my teachers and she is having a student art show this November. Thanks for the encouragement Cathy, we are all very excited!

I am currently reading “Vincent Van Gogh and the Birth of Cloisonnism” (another loan from Gerry). I used this technique in this painting where you see the black outline.
