Pepper Scape

The interior of fruits and vegetables intrigues me.  Unique 'scapes' created from the seeds, pulp and flesh of each specimen.  Worlds unto themselves, waiting to be discovered.

I feel another series coming on...

A couple of years ago I purchased a microscope and had many hours of fun viewing bits and pieces of plant material for my abstract work. Fascinated by what I discovered... time slipped by... I was mesmerized for hours checking out all the nuances of textures and shapes that were revealed through the lens.  Yes, it's time once again to dig out that microscope and have look.

I think I feel a number of series coming on...
