More Peppers

Peppers have been one of my common themes. This one is on Arches Hot pressed paper and is 3 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches.
I have been trying to draw and paint on a daily basis. I have been getting closer and closer to that goal. I have appreciated Danny Gregorys' books, especially Every Day Matters. For years when I have not been painting it is something that has nagged at me almost daily. I have gotten past those fears and I am moving forward. I had a really negative experience back in the early 90's. A week long paint out with a nationally honored artist. It was years before I could pick up a brush again. So, to answer her question, "this is the artist I turned out to be!" It is where I am now and we will see where I go from here.

Keep up the good work--these peppers look nice. The ones on the cards do too--you have a good feel for the shapes and colors. I am SO glad to see you painting again!!

Brian these peppers are wonderful - as are the ones in the previous post. The colours are really great.

I started my blog about 6 months ago and if I needed an excuse to draw daily I'd found it! It has taken me on an amazing journey and I love that I have drawing back in my life after such a long time. It's made me realise how much I NEED to draw.

Have you joined the Everyday Matters group? The link is on my blog if you haven't already done it. You'll find a lot of support there from lots of people on their own creative journeys.

Cheers, Andrea.
