Thai hot

Every time we go to a Thai restaurant, I order regular (i.e., fairly hot) and The Husband orders "Thai hot," which comes with slices of fresh hot chilies piled high.

More art on my website:

Jala, Your diversity is really impressive! Your portrait work and still life paintings are both beautiful! All really well done!

Hi Jala,
Hot stuff! Another beautiful painting. Really love that painting of the lock, too.

Karen said...

Nice. Playful composition. I like with your still lifes how you make the composition look "simple", i.e. they're always just right.

Yummy. Now I'm both hungry and impressed. Really nice arrangement. You've captured the peppers nicely.
Your husband must be a hit with the thai waitresses. We have several Thai friends and they claim that it is common for the women to gauge men by the amount of heat they can handle. In their food that is.

Fluid composition complimented by lovely brushwork. Gorgeous as always. What medium do you use?

Laurel Daniel said...

Gorgeous color, dramatic shadows, perfect pop of highlights... and I LOVE that blue reflection on the righthand green chili.

WONDERFUL painting, Jala - I love the color combo and how the orange pepper just pops.

Jala Pfaff said...

Nancy and R - Thank you so much.

Karen - Thank you. For whatever reason, composition has always seemed very intuitive to me--it just "looks right" to me or it doesn't. In art school we had one composition class and all it did was make me nervous. I do better by instinct.

Brian E - You crack me up. Indeed there is one waitress in particular who seems to have a crush on The Husband. (I didn't know that about Thai women!)

Loriann - I don't use any medium. Occasionally I've tried some, to "see what I've been missing," but either haven't liked them, or else have a bad physical reaction to them (I'm very very sensitive to fumes).

Laurel, Edward - Gracias!
