"Pickled Peppers & Salsa"
original oil painting, 9x12 inch, unframed

This my my first finished painting of the year. Since the weather is bitter cold outside, I am working in the studio from a still life setup. It includes a few of my favorite things - some Red Wing pottery. A small orange custard cup from the Gypsy Trail dinnerware of the 1930s and a dark brown glazed stoneware mixing bowl. The quart jar of salsa and the smaller jars of pickled peppers are all fruits of a summer harvest. It seems living in Minnesota one just gets back into doing canning of fruits and veggies. They are mighty tasty during this cold and frigid winters.
