Turquoise Twosome

I was on a roll last night with these peppers and put them on a light turquoise cloth for this one. Using my slippery new Utrecht #239 Brights felt like ice skating over the surface of the painting. They are synthetic like the ones Kelley gave me. Amazing that I could stop the brush since I coated my panel with Liquin prior to beginning, something I never do. I've always painted with bristle brushes, rarely a sable, ever. It gives a completely different look to the paintings. This one's going up on eBay later with the same starting bid of $60, which reflects my, 'adjusted for recession', prices. I would also like to mention that I once had a subscriber list through FeedBlitz. which no longer responded to my password or emails for some unknown reason, so I ditched it and installed the FeedBurner box to the right for that same purpose. I would so appreciate for all of my visitors to sign up for an email when I post a painting. The more subscribers the more recognition my blog gets in search engine hits. Type in your email address and then verify by clicking the link in the email you'll receive. Thank You!

I love what you're doing with the soft brushes. Gives a nice, loose effect. You are on to something, here...

when I saw this, I immediately thought of the favouritest earrings I ever made. They were red chalcedony and turquoise and they were heavy enough that I should only wear them for an hour or so at a time, but now I've lost one, so half an hour is my limit

Mary, I haven't checked your blog lately and I see I've missed all these brilliant peppers you've been painting. Wow, they are gorgeous. The colors are just perfect, lots of contrast.
