It’s All In A Cobb Salad: Daily Art Practice
I didn’t realize how sporadic my postings have been until I looked back and saw that I have only posted twice this month. Time has picked up and so has our schedule. Two weeks ago, I had a birthday but my daughter and I were suffering through the stomach flu, so we didn’t celebrate. Last week, hubby and I spent a wonderful day at the greenhouse and eating at our favorite coffee shop. That evening, he made this delicious Cobb salad to celebrate my birthday. It has BBQ chicken, caramelized onions, eggs, avocado, tomatoes and a honey mustard dressing. All the things that I love! He is a keeper!
Daily Art Practice
I recently painted these French Macarons for my friend’s birthday. It was a very challenging subject as I haven’t painted many macarons. I painted this picture 3 times before I got one that I was satisfied with. My reference photo is from Pinterest and I used watercolor on Arches paper.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Mount Olympus Flowers from Passenger . This past weekend, we spent a few days in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with friends. We visited this tea and coffee shop and I had this tea, which has white pepper, thyme and spearmint. It was very different than the usual fruity flavors that I gravitate towards. The white pepper added a bit of spice and there was a strong undertone of thyme. I don’t recall tasting the spearmint.
Happy Tea Day,
