Free Peppers

by Cheri Wollenberg

Yellow Pepper
by Cheri Wollenberg

As my husband and I entered our church one Sunday evening, we saw a box at the information desk. On it was a sign, "Free, take what you want." It was not signed so several people who were in that area began to guess who the generous person was.  What a nice gift!  I have to admit I was thinking...........Oh, what beautiful subjects to paint! How can I decide on so few? Do I really take what I want, or should I think of others and take only a few.  I just have to tell you that they were a tempting lot....right there in church! So I did a very thoughtless thing and took several of the most beautiful and unusual shaped, brilliant peppers that I have ever seen.....and the variety of kinds were amazing. The shorten this story, I will say that I painted two today and I plan on painting more. I think I might place one of my paintings in the same place we found the box, and place a sign on it, "Free, to the thoughtful one who brought the peppers."

Lovely peppers. The roundness of the table edge is a great addition.
