Kirsten Kiki Kjaer 10/11/2009 11:38:29 PM

O M G!!!!!!! This is truly AWESOME, SSSL! Eating peppers will NEVER be the same again. HAHAHA! I LOVE that big smile and the little teeth that show. And his eyes are GREAT! You've outdone youself this time, haven't you!!!!
OHOH - I just remembered - It's Halloween! That big sweet smile - it's just to lure us into thinking that we're safe for a moment, isn't it? In reality he'll eat anyone who comes near, isn't that true? Okay - that changed everything in a second.
I'm telling you, Sis. No peppers are ever allowed in my house again this month. I wouldn't dare go to sleep with one of those lurking in the kitchen.
AWESOME poetry!!!! #8028615

Hi Rony!!! Thank you! It was fun to make. I took this picture while I was making dinner! This red bell pepper was sitting on my stove on a white chopping block! I painted in the eyes etc., in my paint program and painted out the BG. I didn't know how to us my PSE7 program yet so this was painstakingly done by hand!Took a couple of hours to get it right!

I appreciate your feedback!

Laura E. Swan 5/29/2010 9:17:49 AM

Hi Laura Lee, Jo Ann, Carol, Tommy, Reynaldo, Steve, Kalena and Ron!

When I cut this pepper in half, getting ready to cook, I saw those seeds looking like little teeth and then the possibility of eyes being painted in and well, it snowballed. The photo shoot began and dinner was late! HA!

Thanks so much for the visit and your ALL of your fun comments.

Ron, I can almost smell the jet fuel for the launch!!! :) How cool is that?
