Exciting new series in parallel with the book series. Took the discarded inside of an old book.  I had used its cover and filled it with new pages for a sketchbook with really rudimentary book-binding involving mostly thread and glue.  The printed pages on this rainy summer day had many undercover messages. Here are two.  And the sketchbook.

Hokey Pokey

"you put you left foot in, left foot out, in, out,in, out and shake it all about". I hear that enough times at children parties! but what if the hokey pokey IS really what it's all about! 😃😀

Inspired by Hartman Miller and lots of 5 year-old birthday parties.

New Food idioms

Clotilde at Chocolate and Zucchini has issued a compendium of non-French food idioms sent in my readers for the give away she had of our book Edible French.

Here are a few of my illustrations of her article.  As always, so much fun to be involved by doing my favorite thing ever!

Donuts and Clapton

Some donuts to get the brush some exercise, and a little memento of the Eric Clapton concert in May. Legendary and such a fun night.

Family trip in Sicily, land if the ever present lemon trees, yellow wild flowers and olive groves. Aquamarine and emeral waters.

Daffodils are in full bloom and some sun is starting to shine during the days that start earlier.

Artist's tools and large scale

After a throughout organization if the studio this week-end, needed due to a teenage sleepover invasion...I found a large canvas with a picture I did not like.  after briefly considering throwing it away, I bought some gesso at the nearby Cassart and resurfaced the canvas to try my hand at acrylics.   This is the start.  I am trying to use the paint to get the runny watery effect of watercolor but on a large scale (this must be about 1x1 meter).    They are my actual brushes and most used tools.  Next step is to add a few more tools and splotches and some watery background. Liking it so far 😃.

Tante Marie

My mother is moving and gave me a few little cooking book gems. This one is a 1937 edition and reads like a novel. Tante Marie includes the manners with which to invites guests over for dinner, how to pick them, family dinner procedures etc...! And the cover is so cute!
The back lists other books like the Fishing Guide of Uncle Pierre. Back when times were simple? (or not- world war did come 2 years after...). in any event, I'm reading it like a novel!
