Two Bell Peppers Still Life


Two Red Bell Peppers – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

Sometimes just as I am about to use a vegetable or fruit to prepare a meal, I realize how much I want to paint it. Typically, I arrive home around 7:30pm from work. This does not leave much time in the evening. So on the lucky occasions where my schedule allows me the opportunity to paint before dinner, I grab it! This is how this painting was created, right before cooking dinner as the bell peppers were the main vegetable ingredient in a stir-fry.

Great peppers. Love the way the saturated red pops on the pool of green. Nicely done. :o)

Yes, fruit and veggies make wonderful still lives.......one gets quite sidetracked.
I love your pictures.

I really admire this one! It is so fresh and NOT over-worked, which tends to be my challenge!
