There is always such a lot to do, and think about, at this time of year. How soon should we put the decorations up? (Done). Have we remembered to send cards to everyone? (Hopefully). When are we going to do the Christmas food shopping? (Undecided). The list goes on.
So it can be a welcome relief to find a few minutes to do a simple basic piece of painting (no painter likes to be idle for long. First we get twitchy, then grumpy and then downright unsociable until we can do something creative again…).
This red pepper was a fine specimen and a fun subject to get back into doing what I like doing best. Not everything has to be a big production. Sometimes the simplest of things are the most enjoyable.
