A Yellow Pepper

A Yellow Pepper, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, November 2008
Private collection, Washington, DC

Today I completed my series of peppers with a very small study of a single yellow pepper. This painting was supposed to happen yesterday, until I realized that the yellow curried shrimp lunch I was eating happened to contain the yellow pepper that was supposed to be a painting subject. All vegetables on the counter are fair game when the cooking begins.

Sweet. Sorry we missed the curried shrimp.

Yes, she puts together some pretty amazing dishes, even when she steals my still-life materials.
