Mackerel

🐡 🐚 WELL LOVELIES, MAYBE IS AN UGLY FISH, BUT HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS.

Creative Residency

Mackerel

line no sooner down than taut

shadow silvering into air
desperate fruit all wriggle

and twitch snapped off
slapped in a plastic crate

fading to layers of leaves
knives out guts chucked

to an instant coven of gulls
heads scarfed whole

sea a boil of snatch and scream
fillets home in a bucket

fried in their own oil
all night my head full

of saltwater skin sun
flesh feather beak bone

so little between us

RELAXING IS RELATIVE…

🍅❤️🍅 WELL BEAUTIES, TOMATOES ARE ONE OF MY PASSIONS ON A DISH AND THIS WORK IS SO GREAT AND GENUINE.

Jots from a Small Apt.

STEWED TOMATOES

Not a joiner. Never liked to stand out. Always stood at the rear of the crowd. Invites to parties, celebratory showers…even my own bridal shower…were angst ridden. The Mother said, “You have to go to this one…and maybe one more.” There you have it. Rinse. Repeat. Rinse. Repeat. Probably a control thing.

My Reader wants to know what this has to do with anything. It has to do with that control thing. You think?

Tara Leaver, Cornwall, England artist, counselor, art instructor, my wanna-be best friend, issued a free drawing workshop via Email and Instagram titled #freeupyourart . A weeks worth of drawing lessons boiled down to basic Beginning 101 Drawing lessons to….free up your art. Simple. Exercises that should alleviate the absolute, carved in stone, no questions asked need to control every movement of the pen or brush. The creative part of…well, free-flowing, spontaneous creative-ness. Shuffs…

Strawberry kiss

🍓👓🍓 HI DARLINGS, IN MY OPINION THESE LINES OF THIS SKETCH ARE FRESH AS A BUNCH OF STRAWBERRIES CAN BE.

Melanie Franz

I wanted to do something again with more ink as I miss my Inktober challenge. I really enjoyed drawing and painting with it.

So this is what it turned into. Strawberry ice cream.

Do you like strawberry ice cream?

Fetish for FIGS…

🟣 HI DEARS! I ADORE FIGS AND THIS WORK IS SO GENUINE.

Jots from a Small Apt.

Fetish for FIGSFetish for FIGS…

It came as a challenge

It came as a dare,

So I went to the studio

And plopped in my chair.

 What began as the one

But concluded with four,

It became quite apparent

There was room for one more.

 Five FIGS to be settled

In harmonious collusion,

On a bed of fine paper

Seemed the fittest solution.

 With pencil and ruler

With ink, paint and co-lour,

Five FIGS emerged quickly

In good humoured ga-lore.

 The time was approaching

The hour finally right,

To unleash this wild fetish

Of FIGGY delights.

 I breathed hot and heavy

Then named them each one,

On, Fiesty! On, Fester! On, Follie and Fudd

And not far behind came FeFiFoFum!

 Think what you will

Think what you might,

BTG’s challenge stands in good stead

And five fractured FIGS bid each a good night.

Boursin Garlic Bisque

🎨🍽️💚 WELL DEARS, IF YOU PAINT WITH OIL COLOURS, YOU CAN PICK VIRIDIAN, EMERALD, TERRE VERTE OR ANOTHER GREEN, BUT DON’T FORGET TO TASTE THIS DELICIOUS RECIPE, GREEN TOO.

snapshotsincursive

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Sunshine Eats: Boursin Garlic Bisque! Have you been to a restaurant where the main course is served with a side of garlic smashed potatoes? The texture is incredibly smooth and the flavor is bursting with fresh herbs and garlic. Gourmet Boursin cheese may be their secret ingredient. Its airy-light texture is a marriage between spreadable cream cheese and whipped butterfat. You can find this French icon wrapped in foil in the cheese department of your favorite grocery store. Serve it with crackers, pita chips, or go all out and make this simple potato bisque.

BOURSIN GARLIC BISQUE

Ingredients:

2 cups chicken broth

2 cups Yukon potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup sweet onions, chopped

3/4 cup light cream

5.3 ounce Garlic Boursin Cheese, crumbled

1/2 cup frozen baby peas, thawed

5 slices crisp bacon, pieces and crumbles

weird and arcane things I must ponder

🍯🧈🥣👨🏼‍🍳 HELLO LOVELIES, THE TABLE IS READY FOR A BREAKFAST. PIERRE BONNARD IS THE KITCHENER.

Aletha Kuschan's Weblog

The bars framing the flowers on either side are products of Pierre Bonnard’s painting that I’m emulating.  They have no other referent.  They’re part of the structure of the window in the Villa Castellamare so I either make stuff up (which may happen) or I follow Bonnard’s lead.  In his painting the two beams are different colors due to alterations in light.  For the present I’m doing what he did so that the left beam is ochre colored and the right is bluish.  (It’s been a long time since I saw the actual painting so I have no idea what the real colors are and book illustrations always exaggerate.)

Anyway it makes me wonder what Bonnard was thinking.  Because the foreground things in my painting are all different from his — especially the flowers — I’ll have to adapt all the Bonnard elements to go with my changes.  All that…
