It looks like I haven't been painting but it's more like I haven't finished 9 paintings that are in the works. This is just another hot pepper still life. Hot like as in summer-in-Maine. We have been cooking here with 80s and 90s and high humidity. We'll have a break soon. But I'll take hot over frigid winter any day. Tonight is the opening at River Arts in Damariscotta for the "Maine Icons & Places" show. I have 2 paintings in this show. So if you're driving up Route 1 stop in the gallery.
