For painting #8, I chose to paint some very hot peppers from my garden. When I cut these peppers up I have to be careful not to rub my eyes for the rest of the day! Wow, they are hot! I grew some of these peppers a couple of years ago. What I hadn't used fresh, I dried and put in a jar. I am sure they have lost a lot of their potency judging from the strength of these fresh ones! I will have to replace the older dried peppers with this year's batch for sure. I had saved a couple of the little green boxes from some raspberries earlier in the season, with the intention of using them in a painting eventually.
I have no idea at this point what I will be painting next. Hmmm, what starts with 'I'?
