Back off

I've been away visiting family for a few days with no way to paint. It rained both days we were there and the house is too nice to mess up with oils! Went to visit the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Fords, PA. What a great place. I came back really pumped up to get back to my peppers and move on to new ideas. One of the things I saw at the museum were black and white oil paintings done by NC Wyeth, Homer Pyle and a few other illustrators. Anyway, here is the last in my pepper series. I didn't change the composition because the peppers had started to change color, shrivel and one was beginning to rot! Another pepper was nibbled on by the mice, so I guess I won't be leaving my still life out

  1. So you did get to Chadds Ford! Way to go!!! I very much like the punched up color in the above painting .... more exciting even with the mouse nibbles.
