Peony Painting

Finally, I pushed myself to get this one off the easel, I had started this one a month or so back but left it sitting there and I got totally disconnected with this painting. Lately, I find myself to have an inconsistent attention span, I want to do everything and my painting gets pushed back, … Continue reading Peony Painting

30 day challenge … day 3

I think I am naming these 30 (5x7) painting challenge, I think it would make more sense to call it the 30 painting challenge.  So anyways here it is, this one was very challenging not my favorite, I just couldn't get those bamboo leaves to my liking but it is what it is and … Continue reading 30 day challenge … day 3

Rosegarden update…

Before mowing the lawn this weekend I was saddened to see 2 of my Honeymoon roses look like they are going to kick the bucket, I emailed Jackson and Perkins with the pictures in hopes that they will stand by their guarantee. Either way, I have 2 new roses that arrived on Friday from The … Continue reading Rosegarden update…

30 day challenge day 3 delayed post.

Day 3 was painted on Friday but never got around to post it, nothing fancy I tried not to overwork the painting, I tried to lay the paint and not mess with it too much.

The Best Mascarpone Brownies.

Yes, they are! Really they are, they're the love child of a moist Brownie and a Tiramisu, they are absolutely delectable and best of all...they are super easy to make. I used my favorite brownie recipe that I have been using now for about 15 years and simply added an additional step to make these … Continue reading The Best Mascarpone Brownies.

My Potager …

Hopefully, you got here after seeing my previous post It’s SPRING! Rose Garden in the making. After completing the rose garden I felt that there was something missing, I needed a French Kitchen Garden - nothing to over the top, just enough space to grow Thyme, Garlic, Green Onions, Shallots, Oregano, Basil and a few … Continue reading My Potager …

I have been once again stuck in the garden - project after project with a painting resting on the easel that I have commenced and … Continue reading It’s SPRING! Rose Garden in the making.
