It’s A Fudgy Kinda Day: Daily Art Practice
Brownies are one of those staples in the American diet that I didn’t grow up with. My mom preferred “gourmet” desserts, so we rarely had cookies, cupcakes and brownies.
My only memory of brownies when I was younger was when I was in elementary school. A dear lady in our church allowed us to swim in her pool. My brother would mow her lawn every week or two and as a bonus to his pay, she made him a pan of brownies with the most amazing frosting. To this day, I wish I had her recipe. I remember my brother asking her for it and she whispered, “It’s from the back of the bag.” If only I knew what bag she was referring too.
Above is a picture of my favorite Sourdough Discard Brownies. I made these frequently during COVID when I started making sourdough.
Travel Journal: Daily Art Practice
I really enjoy eating, baking and painting food, so what better way to document a favorite family recipe than to paint it. I painted this recipe earlier this year for my StencilGirl column, using mostly StencilGirl stencils. The first two pictures are some pages where I practiced some of the elements before adding them to the final piece. If you would like to see the stencils I used, check out my post HERE.
A different layout than the final.
I sketched everything onto Arches watercolor paper and used washi tape as a border to ensure I kept everything centered.
Here is the completed painting before I added digital text.
I added digital text for this recipe because my ink pen went dry and I couldn’t letter as I originally intended. I am debating whether or not to include specific measurements or just general ingredients.
What do you think?
I am joining the tea day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. I am still enjoying this Numi Organic Tea Gunpowder Green Loose Leaf Tea.
Happy Tea Day,
