Our Lady Of Hope

Although I finished this piece over a week ago, I have been crazy busy and unable to post until now...

Unfortunately, even though I have come up with great recipes, and have been able to cook and photograph the dishes, it doesn't' mean I've had the time to post them on my new blog. But I have loved putting together what a friend of mine calls table-scapes!

Yes...table-scapes. Some time in the near future, I'm wanting to have a dessert party at my new place serving a whole big spread of my healthy yummy treats. Banana bread, carrot cake, carob and regular brownies, cupcakes...

I'll close on that yummy thought. Until next time, take care.

While I am a Christian, I am not Catholic. Nonetheless, when I asked my mother what she wanted for her birthday, she wanted a painting of the Virgin Mary. Specifically, Our Lady Of Pontmain which was an apparition of the Virgin Mary as she appeared in Pontmain, France, to a group of children. While there are certain artistic liberties that have been made, there are details very specific to include. The painting is not finished, but here it is in progress.
Here are some other faces, just some quicker drawings and a 3d experiment...

Things have been pretty crazy, but I am determined to pick away at getting to the thousand faces mark. Determined to keep drawing and painting. The food blog is slow going. Even though I have many recipes, and come up with new ones all the time, cooking things, taking photograghs of them, and then blogging about them can be time consuming. But I'll slowly pick away at that, too...here's a recent pic I took of a dish I made...

That's what I'm calling "Garlicky Green Kitchen Fettucini" It was delicious!

Thanks for visiting. Until next time, take care!
