I started buying these cute little red peppers at the store. I like to buy organic peppers because they’re one of the most heavily treated vegetables otherwise. Plus, they taste better! I have always loved cutting into a pepper, the way the seeds sit in there, and contrast between the vibrant exterior and nude interior. So smooth and simple on the outside and yet so complicated inside. Fun to paint!
Sometimes I think it’s better to paint a cheeseburger than eat one. I love Five Guys burgers. It’s sorta a chain I suppose, but they’re amazing! I had one this weekend in fact, all 1000 calories of it… and had a salad for dinner. But really, who doesn’t like a good burger, even vegetarian. There’s something about the layered ability of flavors. Sandwiches of all kinds are my hands down favorites. This little painting is only 6″x6″, making it so cute and little as it stands off the wall. Such a talking piece!
I have done eggs before, but this one seemed fun, more challenging. I eat eggs every morning, two, scrambled, with sprouted wheat toast and jam. It’s one of the ONLY habits in my life. I don’t normally like routine too often. My daughter also loves eggs. She doesn’t like to eat them, but she loves to crack them. Of all her favorite things, I think eggs are up there.
I decided I’m going to paint a bee. I like bees, I have to if I’m going to make paint out of beeswax. I love how this bee is almost looking at his own shadow. Granted, I don’t love a bee when it’s buzzing around my head, but they sure are cute in a picture!
My husband played college ball in New York for a little while. He loved the sport, and was good at it. To this day i’m not really sure why he gave it up. He did get hurt once. I actually even knew my husband when he and my brother played t-ball. He lived in my neighborhood, even. To me, baseball carries little interest as something to watch on TV, but symbolically it means a lot to me! Besides, what’s more american than baseball!? I hope you all enjoy!
