all peppered up


















Pepper painting by Liz Coomes in a museum setting
My spice girl sister sent me this.  It is her spicy painting, a hot green pepper and some garlic.
She found this really fun site to add your artwork to a museum setting. (Click on Museum r) What a fun way to pepper up your work. (and to feel like a Master!)

What adds spice to my day, you ask?

When my Hubby leaves in the morning we hug. It energizes our connection cord.
We he returns in the evening, we hug hello at the door, and it replenishes our connection cord.
That "peppering" puts a smile on both of our faces.

Purple Flowers,
I love the way you pepper your day.
I bet a "Piano" would pepper your day too.
Enjoy!

What spices up my days lately- is seeing that Liz is posting more of her gorgeous work! Painting with no guidelines and with wild abandon spices up a day for me.
Can't wait to see a little spice and check out this site....

That was fun! I sent it along to my artistic kids to see what they come up with....thanks, PVE and Spice Girl!

Kwana said...

Hmm... adding spice. I have to keep this clean. Well, my favorite spice is Old Bay. I can put it on anything and every thing. Even popcorn so that spice adds spice to my day. My other spice is a sweet kiss from my DH. We'll just leave it right there for public blog purposes:)

I love this painting. Liz is so talented. It would look great in my kitchen. Any kitchen!

Peppers are one of my fave foods.... we grow them, but it's a mystery as to what makes each one hot or not. Even from the same plant. Either way, I LOVE the painting!!!! xoh
p.s...don't include me in the contest, since i just won the saki cups :-)

What adds spice to my day?
I will think about it and come back later and comment...I have a 3 yr old tugging at my leg...which really isn't Spicy at all! lol.

I love peppers - the spicier the better! My favorite pizza is pepperoni, pineapple, jalepeno - so good. The museum setting is sweet!

Lauren said...

Thanks for your comments, I am definitely going to take them into consideration, especially about keeping the originals...
What has Spiced up my day today...well I have just dropped off my girls at one of their school friend's home...so I can finally get 2 hours of work done...I know you're thinking WORK? SPICE? but I have so much to get done and I'm tired of going to bed at 1am...so that's my Spice...I'm loving it, just as I love spicey Thai or wasabi on sushi!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

What a fun idea for a site. I love this idea.

Liz does beautiful work!

Ok do I like spice. Hmm in my food I really can't tolerate a lot of it.

What spices up my life. Going on a walk with my pups in the morning and blogging. I truly love it. I get so happy reading others and then reading the comments on my own. Such fun.

What a cool link, Patricia! Thank you. Love liz's painting as well....talent runs in your family! My fellow bloggers spice up my life!

simply seleta said...

Suddenly I have a hankering for roasted red peppers. Hmmm.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Pepper painting, please! (Say THAT ten times fast. :-) I love it.

Getting able to be creative spices up my day...And today, I actually got to be. At work! A tiny but, at least they was something creative. I'll take it!

Hope your day is spicy, PVE!

Mary-Laure said...

I just love spices - and I read that some, like cinnamon, are very good for your health, too.
I adore cumin, clove, cinnamon...

Visiting your Blog and seeing your amazing posts always adds spice to my day.

I love spice and add it to almost all my food. The BF is from Sri Lanka so we like it HOT around here. And what peppers my day is when the BF's parents come to our house and cook dinner for us! Gotta love the in-laws for that (ok, future in-laws).

Deidra said...

What adds spice to my day? No beating around the bush here. When my husband walks through that door at the end of the day...spicy!

Tara said...

My days have not been too spicy, that's why next week I am heading south for a vacation!I'm off to the link...

Joyce said...

This painting is HOT filled with FIRE! I love it!

Oh dear, the hard part here is remember your questions (my short term memory is rusty). I'll give it a try.

I am a spice girl, who loves when her jalapenos pepper walks through the door. It makes me go banana peppers with joy.

Have a salsa of a day my friend! xoxo

Hmmm what peppers my day? Not so spicy lately...receiving an unexpected compliment peppers up my day...you know as a SAHm I don't hear them a lot.

Karena said...

How fun! A great idea and of course I would love to win the painting. Solving problems to help others and painting, spices up my day!

N said...

I love cumin, yet lately I've been ditching it for the fairer coriander.

Can't do peppers :-( they don't like my tummy. But aren't they just the prettiest vegetable?

As many of our grandmothers use to say, "Variety is the spice of life." To me that means the newness of everyday things from our April snow here in MN to a funny email sent from a friend.
