Plethora of Petals…

What do you do with all your flowers from the market? I felt like throwing them away without commemorating their beauty just a bit more was a shame! So, I clipped a few and plucked a few petals right before they wilted away. And, captured some color and had some fun creating some captures via camera…

Butterfly Crowns and Crocodile Tears…🐊

Isn’t he a beauty with a butterfly crown? I just learned this Is process called Lechryphagy in which certain insects like #butterflies drink #crocodile tears for salts and proteins. And, some serious “side-eye”. Isn’t inspiration from nature amazing? I find it seriously fascinating….

……………………………………………………..

I can’t stop thinking in that crocodiles head they are thinking “I’m a very delicate flower”. Haha. . .

Cookbook Mania and Food ArtπŸŽ¨πŸ“š

Alright, the real reason I have my colored pencils out…a food illustration class at Skillshare.

And, of course I need inspiration from a few amazing cookbooks. So, cookbook crazy…

And, it’s making me hungry and thirsty. Luckily, I’m dedicated to getting back in shape (day 4 this week at the gym. So yumminess will have to wait! For now!) Favorite sexy food? Favorite sexy cookbooks? Tell me everything…πŸπŸŽπŸ‹πŸŠ

A Fantastic Slippery Slope…

Have you ever had that moment you have to choose up or down? I literally had to choose up or down today. I took my rambunctious son to the local county fair, in my old home town. Just he and I, and I didn’t know I would be doing such choosing but, there I was on the narrow stairs stuck with a flood of little people coming at me. It was go up or fight the flood down. I choose up…

So, the climb started because my kiddo lost his blanket a quarter of the way down for the tall slide. There was no one at the top to help him and I started to think he was going to be stuck. He was panicking a bit.  So, before think how stuck I would be I started up. With no blanket. 

In me middle of the climb, he rushed by me and was coming down the slide. Ha. Luckily, his little friend was coming back up and somehow I convinced her to take me down with her double. Cotton candy, lemonade and purse in tow. I forgot how fun…

My Art on a children’s bookcase…🌿🎨

   
   
The bookshelf that was made for my son playhouse and its art is finally complete! I used leftover house interior paint, acrylic paints, and parts of the brochures from the #kehindewiley exhibition at the #SAM , pieced in with matte paste, because it was to amazing to let go… Also, inspired by “inky” the getaway octopus. Clever fellow. What do you think?
