Yesterdays almond butter was so BROWN...I really needed to be
colorful today, so I dug out the ancient leftover Halloween candy that
no one touches. I don't know why we don't just throw it away, it's sort
of sticky. The props here will go straight into the garbage can. If I'm
going to splurge on sweets it's going to be a big scoop of ice cream.

A big giant spoonful of gooey almond butter. It's my favorite!
And on a green apple is so good too. This is the first one that
quite hard to keep from eating while I was painting it. I'm having
it now. Yum.

This is a 2nd go for Illustration Friday, liquid. My first is here. The blob
on the table is supposed to be a drip of water, This one was very difficult.
I love trying though. I worked on making the whole thing liquidy looking

A big puffy everything bagel. I'm admitting here that sometimes
I go over the 30 minutes, basically because if I don't feel finished
it's really hard to just stop. This one I did just stop.
I don't eat bread so this was a bit torturous to have in front of me.
I guess that's what made it easier to say, "I'm done"

The sage in my garden is still there after the winter, very woody
and leggy with dried flower pods all over the top of them. I had
hung a branch of them to dry a few weeks ago so here is the live
plant and the dried one. I am submitting this one to Illustration
Friday too, for the word future. Maybe a bit of a stretch, maybe
more like before/after?

I have these cute little cheese knives that I felt like painting
today, so I found a chunk of cheese in the fridge to go with
them. We don't eat too much dairy in our house so sometimes
the cheese is a bit old and moldy and I end up throwing it
out. This one was ok. A bit stinky...

This one turned out to be so hard.. I spent WAY over
my 30 minutes because I never liked it and just kept
painting over and over. I finally had to stop so I wouldn't
just have mud. I did photograph this time which I will
post below. I think the earlier versions had some good
elements that I lost but that's ok.. I'm just
playing with these.
