"Tiny Bells" --- SOLD
I did this painting last night and didn't have daylight to photograph it in. I'll post another this afternoon.
I found these miniature bell peppers at Central Market yesterday and couldn't help myself. It took me forever to find a composition I liked, however. At first I was just randomly tossing them about hoping they would land in a pleasing order. : ) Generally after about 20 minutes or so I start to get panicky. But lately, I've accepted that it takes time to set up a good still life, even something simple like this, and that I should allow for it rather than being frustrated by it. Just having that thought has calmed me down and, I think, led to better paintings.
