warm enough painting number 20

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. John Steinbeck

Here we have a large very red pepper for my guacamole series. It is as warm as a summer day.
It is a wonky sort of pepper leaning to the side as if inebriated from indulging in margaritas.

I have a color theory about dressing in outdoor clothing for winter. A warm red coat is preferable to a warm coat of a dark color. I once had a navy blue coat and shivered all winter. That might have also been because we were living in South Bend, Indiana during an exceptional blizzardy winter. Be that as it may, I now wear a red down coat and feel warmer in it. Not really ever warm enough but I endure.

Maybe red pepper and green onion is not included in the purist recipe for guacamole? I do not know, not being a purist cook.
