"Jalapeno Butterfly"





















6 x 6 oil on canvas panel SOLD

Couldn't help thinking this Jalapeno looked like a
a hot Butterfly. I can't take credit for it...saw the
image
on a friend's Facebook page and had to paint it!
I superimposed the image on some of my fabric.
Thank you, Larry Schlemer, for the use of your

very cool photo!

Happy New Year to you Gwen!

This is sooo sweet. I like Jalapeno. But the presentation you have done is extremely creative. I love the seeds you have arranged in that. Fabric color is equally balanced. Great Work again Gwen!

Adore this one! Fantastic colors and so fun. I am a huge paisley fan and reminds me of paisley- maybe jalepeno paisley?...is that Ralph Lauren calling for you?

A very sweet little painting! Maybe the start of a new series of sliced in half veggies and fruit? Making Rorschach "tests" in paint!
Goes very well with your nice patterned fabrics!

I love your new series - the background of the fabric pattern brings the magical, charming energy to each painting, defining such a unique character.
Congratulations on your GREAT REBOUND!
