Well, slowly but surely I'm getting back in the groove.
Feels good to be painting again.

It's hotter-n-blazes here in Big D and nothing cools
you off quite like Mango Salsa. I forgot to add the
Chilies and lime to the composition, but not in the
real deal.
Also, you're really supposed to use Jalepanos
and Cilantro in the recipe, however, this time I tried
it with little Thai Chilies and Basil. It was still yummy!

Luscious, Gwen! The form of the objects, the colors - everything just sings! LOVE this!

Cori Lynn Berg said...

Yes, it's way way too hot here in Dallas! Good reason to stay inside and paint!

Lovely as always!

Virginia Floyd said...

Sounds yummy! This is beautiful, Gwen. Glad to see you painting again!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

It surely looks yummy from here! Your paintings are little jewels of color and composition, Gwen.

You are SO back and I for one am thrilled... LOVE the colors in this, feel like I'm at a festival. And speaking of hot, oh phew, humidity in the high desert and 119. Unfortunately, I think I win and I don't want to :>)

David Larson Evans said...

Looks real enough to reach out and take one.

Sheila said...

I love your style! I adore your compositions. I admire your skill. That avocado looks so creamy thanks to your perfect rendering.

Barbara Andolsek said...

My bad Gwen, I meant 104 degrees, not 119. Although really, nasty hot... I miss my TX gals.

So glad to see you back in the swing of things Gwen. And you are the Queen of patterned backgrounds!

Susan Roux said...

Refreshing and beautiful Gwen...stay cool!

Marie Theron said...

So beautiful! And I think the cloth is so well chosen as it repeats the forms of the basil leaves!

Une petite danse de fruits en salade... mixée aux couleurs envoûtantes à l'oeil... très organoleptique...
Gros bisous.

Your painting looks delicious, the salsa sounds yummy too. Glad to see you back on top of your old form. Wonderful composition, interest and colour. You must be a lady of great patience!

Gorgeous Gwen,

I'm impressed. It's hot here too, and I sure don't feel like cooking, or even making salad. Take out Indian food seems to be a favorite.

XO Barbara

Oh Gwen...it was worth the wait! Wow ; ) A beautiful little gem: snappy, eye-popping, colourful - fantastic! That mango is killer! And the onion, well...perfection. So good to see this painting. I hope things are a little cooler for you? And I'll have to try that recipe. It sounds delicious. Take care friend!

Lisa Daria said...

Huge fan of your ability to be able to work in a complicated pattern and still have a hierarchy of what one sees first - HOW DO YOU DO IT?!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

I agree with Lisa. Your still lifes on fabric just blow me away.
