If you have been wanting to add any of my little (or big!) paintings to your collection and wondering how — I now have a convenient spot to find and purchase them on Daily Paintworks. They accept PayPal, and I can ship anywhere in the U.S., and maybe even further away once I research that. If you are outside of the U.S., please contact me and we’ll see how that could work.

Vegetable entertainment

I’ve been pressing my fruits and vegetables into service in the interest of getting frequent painting warm ups. These slim but fiery red peppers are deceptively compact, they deliver a powerful heat, and the white pepper is new to me. The red ones might be Thai peppers. White = sweet pepper, or maybe a bell? I’ll find out how hot is is when I slice it for cooking!

Since I have a light bulb with changing colors, just for fun I thought to try doing one scene with these same vegetables with different color cast shadows. There seems to be no color in my palette which matches either of the cast shadows, or maybe I just don’t know how to do that yet. If you have any insights, please share them!
