This pitcher was given to me a few years ago by my good friend, Dolores.

Out at my friend Maggie's house the other day, I sketched one of her horses very quickly as it did not want to stand in one place for very long . I went back in with paint later. Maggie lives on a huge piece of property and has many horses and dogs. Her kids were celebrating birthdays and we were there enjoying a waterslide, hamburgers, and crawfish. Mmmm good.
This is my youngest, Will. It was rare to see him sitting still so I pulled out the sketchbook and drew him. Will is the youngest of five, and will soon be 16. I still think of him as the baby of the family. The drawing surprised me, it made me see how much he has really grown up.

Food and I go way back. So I thought, why not spend some time really looking at it? See some beauty in it instead of always stressing about it. What to eat, what not to eat, when to shop for food, how much money to spend on food, what to fix for dinner, who likes broccoli, who hates salmon, run out for eggs and orange juice, etc. etc. etc.
A new approach to food.
