6 x 6″, acrylic on canvas panel

Long and green with a tiny hint of ripeness at the tip, these twisty peppers look other-worldly and belie their stillness with movement implied by the light reflecting off the tantalizing texture of their rippled surface.

One of a series of twelve in my Boxed Still Life: Pepper Series

This original acrylic painting is on 6″ x 6″ canvas panel and has been attached to a hand finished wood trivet frame. Drilled hole in back for hanging and rubber pads on bottom to protect surfaces. Final framed size is 8″ square.

Displays equally well alone or in a group with others from the same series.

The genesis of my Boxed Still Life series project was in 2010 when I decided to photograph various fruits in my daughter’s colorful wooden stacking/nesting boxes as series of ‘boxed still life’. It was/is my attempt to create a trompe l’oeil effect so that anyone viewing the paintings might feel as if they could reach into them and pick up the object depicted. They turned out so well and got such a good response that I thought it would be fun to do a new Boxed Still Life series every year. I did a second series in 2011 featuring flowers, but didn’t get around to doing one in 2012 as I focused on doing my larger urban landscape watercolors (and having my second child). I finally began my third series in 2013; I’ve always loved looking at the big assortment of peppers on display in the produce section at mygrocery store, so that’s how I chose the subject. The peppers were a lot of fun to do because there is such a great variety in their shapes, colors and textures.

With my paintings I’m just celebrating the beauty I find in the world, from the natural to the man-made and the confluence between the two. I like the challenge of filtering what I see through my eyes, brain, nerves, muscles and fingertips onto a two dimensional surface. I think I was born hard-wired to be an artist of some sort. One of my earliest memories is of when I was very small and used to suck my thumb, I would stroke my face with my index finger and imagine it was a paintbrush.
