Recipes and Friends

These still lives are in a series called Painting Recipes that I've played with for some time. I'm going to post a new one this weekend -- a Mother's Day gift -- so I've been thinking a lot about them. Here we have recipes for homemade lemonade, hot cocoa with marshmallows, Sharkboy's pumpkin pie, and -- well, the title says it all: Is There a Title That Doesn't Include a Tequila Reference?

Truthfully, I've been in a pickle lately. What time I've set aside for painting has been spent on commissions this spring (Yippee!!!) and that doesn't leave me much to "blog" about. Then a dear friend dropped by the studio and gave me some great ideas. She is the Sarah of Hyacinths for the Soul - click here to visit her beautiful blog - and so, of course, she knows a thing or two or twenty about blogging. So inspirational.

Beautiful series, Mitzi. And congratulations on the commissions.

Mitzi, thank you for the thoughtful comments. I so enjoyed our visit, and am thrilled The Parisian has come to live here at HFTS. ;-)
I think the "painting recipes" is such a clever idea. And you know I adore the "shelf life" series as well. You are on to something good here. Keep moving forward!
Happy Mother's Day to you. Hope to see you again soon.
