The blog of Ohio artist, Nora Sallows, a compulsive oil painter!

I came home the other day with a lot of produce, courtesy of my friend, Sue. Her veggies look a lot better than mine. They taste better too. I had these banana peppers sitting in a bowl on my counter and last night I noticed that they were starting to turn from a pale yellow to a really nice shade of orange and even red in one case. I made up my mind to paint them. I set the alarm and painted them before I left for work this morning. They are painted about life size on the 6" x 6" piece of masonite.
Now I have to figure out what to make with them. The color change is probably a sign they are getting old.
