Two Thai Chili Peppers

Two Thai Chili Peppers, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, May 2008
Private collection, San Jose, California

Today I tried a study of two little Thai chili peppers. Some things are particularly challenging, on any scale. Painting big can reveal so many things that can be hidden when scrubbing around the details in something small.

I actually think this painting has a lot of character. I picture two brothers separated at birth that have reunited.
