Onion and Peppers – Still life by Karen Winters

July 7th, 2008

“Onion and Peppers” 5 x 7 oil on canvas

After months of watching virtually nothing but election news on TV and radio, I decided that I am finding the whole thing too stress producing and have switched some of my viewing habits to Food Network. Yeah, I still keep tabs on what’s going on, but I no longer choose to have political speak as the soundtrack for my life. With that influence, I’ve probably seen more closeups of peppers and onions and garlic cloves in the past week than I have in years. And they’re really fun to paint, too!

So here’s a closeup view of some ingredients headed for the chopping block. Get em while they’re hot … the pepper, that is.

  1. “This could be the start of something grand”–like chili!!

    Those peppers are just luminous!

  2. Luscious! Love the colors of the veggies against the background. Free and loose.

  3. The onion skin is just beautiful. Love it.

  4. OH, I was so enthralled by those peppers I missed the political bit! Yep, that is no kind of sound track to maintain an equilibrium with, is it! Good for you…you can get your news in other ways, and I do–but TV news? No thanks…

  6. Beautiful still life!

  7. Really good, Karen. Always liked oils. Very realistic. Still life just doesn’t appeal to me, for a subject for me to paint. But that’s me.

  8. Your confidence shows through in even this lively little painting.

  9. Love the skin on your onion and the lighting is PERFECT!

  10. Your Tuscan picture and this one are both great. I can turn off the news but my husband is keeping tuned every minute of this election. Being retired perhaps it’s keeping his mind busy but I can’t keep up with it so much. I am enjoying seeing everyone’s art. It’s much better than hearing the news.

  11. Yes, Karen, I hear you about the news. After
    many heartbreaking weeks following 9-11, I
    had to heal, and I watched the Food Channel
    and Antique Roadshow for a long time. Still
    get my news online since then.

    Much better to look at those lush veggies, and
    marvel with Tami and Becky at that onion skin.
