Oldie but goodie...

Here's on old art school project I painted in oils. The assignment was "create a painting that incorporates at least three eggs somehow". I've always liked this piece. Maybe this is when my obsession with chickens started?

My "They Draw & Cook" blog recipe submission...

I've been a fan of the They Draw & Cook blog for some time now and so I decided to send a submission to them. It turns out some recipes from the blog will actually be published in an upcoming book, so hopefully mine makes it to the blog AND the book! Fingers crossed!

Check out the blog here.

October is the best month...

HALLOWEEN!!! Need I say more?
Here's a few of the pumpkins I've carved for previous Halloweens...

The witch pumpkin!
I started with a witch hat, a green pumpkin, a gourd for her nose, toothpicks for her teeth, crocosmia leaves from my flowerbeds for her hair and two eggshells. After Halloween I took off her hat and placed her in the compost pile!

A white pumpkin, two glass beads for eyes, pumpkin seeds for teeth and some medical gauze created this mummy pumpkin.

I wonder what I'll create for this Halloween. Hmmm...
