soldI recieved these peppers from my artist pal Vikki Finch, I was SO excited to paint them, they are so beautiful and vibrant, I feel as though I didn't do them justice. I painted them a couple of days ago. I was struck by the feared stomach virus early monday, and really am just now sitting upright...jeez. Both my husband and three year old also have been virus-ed up, my eighteen year old is trying as hard as he can to avoid contamination! I hope he can do it. Tomorrow I plan to be back on schedule! Hope your return to "real life" after the holidays has been smooth! L.
