Red and green chiles are one of the most recognizable symbols of the American Southwest. Grown abundantly in southern New Mexico, they are harvested in late Summer through early Fall, and are the Number One garnish on southwestern cuisine from Texas to California.
Red chiles are also tied into ristras to be hung in our homes as bright and cheerful wall decor, and as a symbol of bringing good luck into the home.
This is an original painting on stretched canvas, signed and dated by the artist. The artist has finished the painting by applying a thin coat of amber artist's varnish at the top and allowing it to 'run' down the canvas -- giving the work an interesting toned finish.
The frame is a simple ornate design, gold leafed.
