Four little hotties - SOLD

I woke up this morning to the sad news that I'm sure everyone has heard by now: Carol Marine's house was destroyed by a wildfire over the weekend. My heart goes out to them as they begin to process what that now means : ( The only positive thing I can say is that her family is safe,  thank goodness. I'm pretty far removed from Texas and don't know if other familes have been as fortunate in that regard. Here's hoping. I took a class from Carol in 2009 and she was generous, funny and genuine. We're all thinking of you and your family Carol ((hugs)). If you'd like to send them a donation, card or paintings props, I know Kathy Cousart posted information on Facebook. 
Okay - well, aside from that...this morning I painted these peppers from my sister-in-law's garden. In fact we minced one of these last night on top of our nachos. Yum! These are going to keep our tongues tingling this winter ; )
And a special thank you for the shout-out from Diane Hoeptner today on her blog post: Mull it over Monday. Thanks. I find your blog interesting and your work is beautiful. You rock ; )
And while I'm on shout-outs - here's one to my friend just because she never fails to inspire me right when I need it: one word and you'll know who I'm talking about: Huzzah! (yes, that's you Crystal Cook ; )

I love four little hotties!! The only thing else you need is a pic of Alex Pettyfer ;) I love the variation of your colors, it's just gorgeous Kim!

And I think it is so sad what happened to Carol and all the other famiies out there. I'm glad you posted the link to Kathy.

AND you made me all teary eyed Kim!! Thank you SO much for the shout out. You are an awesome painter, superwoman, and friend. You are the best. :) Huzzah!!

Love the title, Kim, and the painting! Thanks for the info on Carol. Very heartbreaking, but it is good to know they are safe.

Love your painting, Kim!

Thanks for the info on the Marines. I learned yesterday of their house. Bastrop is south of where I live and know several people who have also lost their homes. It's tragic. I urge all to make a donation!
