It's Crunch Time

Every Tuesday my neighbors have a community farm stand with their organic produce. I always come away with fresh veggies and I often come away with beautiful reference photos. I was really going for the light on these shiny peppers. This is the music that had me moving today. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'music' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)

I must have looked at your a-w-e-s-o-m-e highlights for a full minute before I read what you had to say about going for the light on the peppers. I think you nailed it. Carolina
PS. I haven't forgotten your postcard, I just have been working in other directions lately. I imagine I will get going with my paints soon.

I don't know that the word amazing can cover this one.

I just loved that green color just like the orange you use in most of your paintigs.

I love the music! Hadn't heard that song for years.
As for the painting-super! You really know how to get the light and I love the really dark green on some of the edges. The stem going off the edge is really nice too.
