Stump Studies Red Peppers, 8x6, Oil on Canvas, Click to Bid
What is it about this stump? Every time I start to set up a still life with a man made piece, I take it down and go back to the stump. I've ventured outside to find other "organic" props but nothing makes the cut.
Certainly, the reason I gravitated towards the red peppers was the color. In fact, I was shopping for regular green jalapenos for a cabbage salad recipe and spotted these. Loved painting with red with the added advantage that they look/taste great in the salad too.
All in all, while the red is bold and saturated, it's still a quiet little painting.
