Summer work (the official kind with a real paycheck) is over for me. For the next two weeks I can be an independent artist/amateur foodie/domestic goddess – all of which reap different but worthy “paychecks”. Then back to the real grind when school starts back up. I don’t want to think about that…look at my pretty veggies. I grabbed a feast from the Merriam Farmer’s market this morning. I will have to use it up before I leave town for a couple nights on Monday. Any good tomato recipes out there? Eggplant? I also got something called “noodle beans” from the Thai farmers.
Also of note this weekend are these three paintings I am working on. I think they are almost done. They are in the stage of painting where they just have to set there for a while…let the flavors blend….tomorrow I’ll figure out if they have reached their full potential. Kind of hard to see…but basically I was working on a snail, a flower, and a tree branch. And of course adding all kinds of crazy colors, lines, and shapes.
What are you doing this weekend?
