There is nothing like rotting vegetables to spurn me on. This was a quick painting. Rushed would actually be an accurate description of how I painted this thing. The pepper were really starting to go. They were getting wrinkly and black spots were starting to appear. There was a slightly weird smell starting to waft from my art cave. Luckily, I bought the Peppers on the cheap.
I painted this thing in maybe 3 or 4 hours total. The bulk of the time was last night and I added "finishing touches" this morning. Mostly, I'm excited to have another canvas covered because when I use all the ones I have here at home I can go buy more of the square gallery ones. Until I use up all my canvas I can't really justify the purchase.

(red, white, shallot) and garlic heads,
but I had to use some of them for dinner
....so that's what those red lines are.

|Ugly underpainting. Just can't get around |
|I noticed the composition was sucking with|
the yellow pepper almost directly aligned with
the orange one, so I had to move it. to the right

rushed brush strokes.
