When I was a little girl, I kept this green “kiwi spoon” that came with some kiwis we bought from the grocery. Somehow, I have this impression that kiwis then all came with these little spoons which were spoons on one end and knives on the other! I never realized I would be able to find use for it, but seeing that there were kiwis to paint, I decided to include it in the composition. I tried to be very detailed with this one. Hope you like it.

By the way, I just joined Twitter a few days ago. If you are into Twitter and you’d like to follow me, here is my page: http://twitter.com/faithte

This green chili pepper (fresh from the market) was done on the same day as yesterday’s red chili pepper. It was a joy to paint and I like how it turned out. Hope you like it too!

This one was quite easy and I had time to do another painting the day I did this chili pepper. Two paintings in one day — quite a huge achievement for me! I will be posting the other one tomorrow.

This painting took quite some time to finish but I really enjoyed it. The knife, especially, was a lot of fun. I think it turned out well and it’s my most favorite, so far.
