Keepin’ it loose!

Paul brought these beauties home from the grocery store yesterday, and this morning they were just begging to be painted. So after I worked on a larger landscape for a while, I painted this bitty one, trying to keep it quick and loose. It has a kind of a vintage feel to it, I think.

I really enjoyed it ... I think I’ll have to do more kitchen paintings.

After I painted it I used one of the tomatoes in this for lunch:

It’s chicken spaghetti in a beautiful baking dish my sister gave me for Christmas. When I took it out of the oven it was as pretty as a picture. So I went ahead and made it one.

This is great Karen! I love it! You should do more kitchen paintings. The recipe looks delicious too and I think you need to post it...I could use some new ones for my family.

Thanks, Denise, great idea! I’ll post the recipe on Saturday. :)
