Pepper Help

"Eat Your Veggies" -- a painting started during my Fall Still Life Painting class demo -- finally is finished, thanks to yellow and red peppers that became part of yesterday's feast. So, in a way, it's this year's ode to Thanksgiving.

Last year's Thanksgiving-related work was originally titled "Turkey Soup" -- later changed to "Persimmons in the Kitchen." Daughter-in-law Michelle was making turkey soup with leftovers in 2011. In 2012, she was in charge, among other things for roasted vegetables -- including these peppers.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I'm thankful for you!
