Painting our supper

"Wow!" Andi remarked, "The teapot and the bowls look fantastic with those mandarins."


She was right.

We eat well around here. So well I couldn't resist the inspiration and painted a sort of documentary of what we ate. 




Teaspoons and almond extract and garlic rested on the big table along with the paper and brushes.


Here's a bit of what I did...




It was all so delicious. 

Hurrah for kitchens everywhere!

Hi Sharon!
It is so nice to visit your blog again! I love your new recipe illustrations. Do you have a cookbook in the works?

I bought mandarins this week --they were wonderful!

Your colors! And of course the recipes. lovely. Oh, and the calligraphy. and a peek into how it all goes together in your warm kitchen. Thank you!

Need a recipe book from you, with pictures out your kitchen window, and of your homey table.

and of course, the sweet dogs lying on your feet while you paint!

Warmed my day - time to make soup! Hope I'm pure in heart enough for it to 'taste good' :)

Lovely photos of your dear kitchen and those sweet snowdrops as a foretaste of Spring! Your photos even with less than the best camera are always superb. I have some seeds for you--will plan to drop them by next Tuesday!

Really enjoyed this-what a great calendar this would make! I wouldn't have to keep asking you for your cherry pie recipe!
