Playing with my food

When in Roma

How about a new series? I know I’m ready for one.

To be honest, between the portrait series and trying to get our house ready to sell, I’m feeling the need to simplify my life any way I can. So for the next month or so I’m going to concentrate on uncomplicated subject matter. And what’s simpler than food?

Steve and I are getting into a new diet plan and I thought, This is great! I’ll paint what I’m eating, which, as it turns out, is a lot of fruit and vegetables. I enjoyed doing these so much last year (remember the xmas zucchini?) and I feel like it’s time to get into them again. Hope you enjoy them.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, WIP

They’re coming. And there’s nothing you can do to stop them. Steve keeps telling me he didn’t expect them all to survive, but now they have, and the kitchen counter is starting to get the least little bit crowded. I picked out some likely looking specimens for today’s painting and you know there’ll be more tomorrow. And the day after that. And the day after that.
