Anyone got a catchy name for this. It is a 2 session painting, oils, 11 x 14 inches on canvas panel. I guess I could call it garlic and pepper, but my intuition says there's something else out there.

some close ups. the granite slab is totally fictitious. I can't afford green polished granite:(

here are some closeups of the brush work.

I Like the work. As far as a name I am at a loss, but then again does it really have to have a name?

i used to have a clay garlic roaster, loved it, it broke
a pepper, any color, would be a pretty decent replacement, yes? i'll experiment.

'stuffed pepper' perhaps for a title, or just 'stuffed' or 'roast that pepper' or 'stuff it' ... not very elegant a title, but delicious none the less.

stellar work as usual delmus, bravo

Great painting! The first thing that came into my mind when I saw it was "Canning season", but is it is not catchy though :)

No name suggestion here but want to say that this is a beautiful still. the only thing that bothers me is the gray bottom of the piece. Is this finished?

OOps, I guess the color or white balance on this photo was crappy. The entire background is a cold gray matching what is under the shelf as opposed to what is above the shelf. I need to re-photo this. See below is a better shot.
