Chiles, oil on birchwood board, 16″ x 24″, 2011.

Life goes on—which is the greatest thing:  The chiles came in at True Love Farm (Steven and Karen grow a section just for me!).  We picked each week for 3 weeks,  and my mom and I roasted and dried 4+ bushels.  Then when my sister , Theresa, and nephew , Carson, came next, she helped me (read:  she did it ALL!) make the ristras this year.  I still couldn’t paint during their visit, but soon after my friend Stella came over, and we set up this still life of the chiles and my molcahete in my dining room, and something began to enliven in me.  For the first time since plein air and Emma, weeks later, I was beginning to paint in my beloved oils again.
