Ready to Hang
This is one of a series of hot peppers I painted. I wanted this to look sinister and show that it can bite back. This is oils on stretched linen with the sides painted. It may be hung without a frame.
There's a compulsion to interpret visual moments for this painter. The hope is that a special moment can somehow be preserved forever. I love working in oil paints. They are challenging and forgiving at the same time. Color, texture and light are the main components that I try to give center stage. And then sometimes I just paint a simple painting without much thought at all. It's all creative process.
