I did a series of hot chili peppers. I was surprised by the variety of hot peppers available so painted a number of them. Mexican food is a favorite so I've also been learning to use them more in cooking.
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.
