My obsession...

Orange Pepper Study

I have a confession to make... I am obsessed with painting peppers! I have lost count of the number of pepper paintings I have completed, and I can honestly say there is no end to them in sight! I am just intrigued by the variety of shapes and colors of peppers, and the way the light seems to illuminate them almost from within. My obsession seems also to have gone beyond painting peppers myself... I recently purchased a beautiful hot pepper painting by the talented German artist, Kora Fried.


  1. I especially like the orange peppers! Very nice.

  2. You have an expressive style with still life. This looks great!
