Todays' Painting, "Quarter Pepper" by Gordon van Vliet


Todays' painting, "Quarter Pepper" is 6"W x 4"H oil on canvas. This is my second painting in the pepper format and is the exact pepper used in the first painting.

The quarter is not an American quarter, but a Dutch quarter obtained on my last trip there in 1984. Now Holland uses the Euro like so many other countries in Europe.

My pepper crop is growing well.

Comment: i took several photos of pepper plants today because i was doing a painting of the kirby barn [what else would i do] at the painting out but i was sitting next to a field of peppers. they were allowing a large group of plants go red. it was a great day with lots of clouds. as usual i love your site and the painting is great.

Much better pepper than the penny pepper. This one looks good enough to eat! Lori

Very nice pepper, Gordon. I with I had a garden for inspiration. All I can paint outside where I live is wet! I wonder, can a person paint rain?

Good luck with the ebay. I am scheduled to start the ebay process in October as well. I hope it goes smooth.

Take care.

I think painting rain would be fun. How about reflections of something interesting in a puddle or with fresh rain falling on it. Great exercise. Looking forward to see your progress on Ebay as well.

Prefer this one to the other because the composition is stronger. You work keeps getting better and better.
