Hot Couple

The Italian Market had their end of summer 'bulk' pepper sale... of course I selected a few to paint including this hot couple...
I love shopping at the Italian Market here in Edmonton.  Once inside the door you are transported to another world... the old world, with some hints of North America scattered throughout the store.  From  endless choices of olive oil, vinegar, and tomato sauce, to interesting fruits and veggies... this store offers you a taste of Italy at reasonable prices.  My produce paintings are often inspired by a shopping trip to this quaint store... a colorful hot spot filled with cooking staples, spices and of course, sweet treats.

I find reds/oranges to be very challenging. You did a terrific job.

Definitely a very HOT looking painting. Love the red/orange with the touch of green. Nice thick paint application.

LOVE these hot reds! But my favorite part is that terrific green stem.
