Time for Teal part 8

🧿 HELLO DARLINGS! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL COMPOSITION. WHAT A GENUINE COLOURS. AND MY APPETITE IS GROWING

talltalesfromchiconia

It’s been a sore few days in the back department.

Not a lot of sitting at the sewing machine or hunching over my light box. On the other hand, I have signed up with our local aquatic centre and am doing a half-hour to an hour of water-based back strengthening exercises every working day. I have the entire pool to myself, it’s heated and it’s a bit of luxury; about the only place my back doesn’t hurt. Anyway, back to Time for Teal.

Teal Small Plate PP design

This beautiful block designed by Esther of ipatchandquilt, and available in her Craftsy store, has taken me three times as long as it should because of not being able to sew for long periods at a time, but I’m so happy it’s finally finished and I can show it off!  I know my forks are a bit, um, rustic in appearance, but I feel…

Coffee in Chennai

⏱️🍴 HI BEAUTIES! I’M THINKING ABOUT WISE THOUGHT BY THE AUTHOR: ‘SUPER-QUICK SKETCHES BECAUSE THE FOOD IS SO GOOD’

Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook

When in Chennai, drink filter coffee. And if you can help it, make sure you grab some at a tiny corner shop that pours your coffee just right. (wish I’d captured that pour in a sketch: here’s an instructables step-by-step on how to do it right) Or, drink (and eat) at Saravana Bhavan. Super-quick sketches because the food is so good. And because I was at the stand-up version of the restaurant where everyone eats standing up at small, communal round tables.

It must be good if all the cops stop by for their morning tiffin, right?

Something completely different from me.

🍇🍷 HI DEARS! SISTER SUSAN HAS CONTRIBUTED WITH HER WORK TO ADDING THIS OLD DRINK TO OUR SERIE ABOUT FOODS.

Susan Feniak's Art

A commission

This painting was indeed completely different for me to do. I have never done any lettering, and I have decided that I don’t care to ever do it again. The grapes, wine glass, bottle and wine were something I have never tackled on canvas with acrylic paints before either. The reflections on the glass and motion of the pouring wine were fun to recreate. The purchaser gave me the words and a vague idea of what she had in mind and then pretty much gave me free reign to do what I thought best. To quote, “do that thing you do”. Admittedly I did enjoy taking her idea and recreating something out of that. Because I had never done anything like this before I gave her a screeching good deal. Lesson learned, every painting takes just as long for me to do with just as much thought going…

Dans mon coeur une grenade.

dessins de femmes, desseins de femmes

Ma fille est formidable.

Je le dis en toute objectivité. N’imaginez pas une seconde que c’est à cause de mon sang de maman méditerranéenne que je l’écris. Que nenni!

Ma fille a peint une grenade. Et je l’adore.

Petite, elle dessinait souvent. Mais plus grande, elle avait laissé de côté les feutres et les aquarelles.

De retour à la maison ces derniers jours pour une partie de l’été, elle a pris un carnet et à commencé à dessiner dedans.

Aujourd’hui elle dessiné une grenade.

C’est son deuxième dessin dans ce carnet.

Elle l’a pris en photo et me l’a envoyé quand j’étais au travail.

Et pour moi, cela a été une explosion.

J’ai trouvé cette grenade magnifique, magique.

Une explosion sous mon sein gauche.

En plein dans mon coeur.

Old-Time Asparagus Omelet Recipe

🥄🟡 SO TRUE, SISTERS. YOU ONLY HAVE TO MAKE A COMPOSITION WITH GREEN LINES ON A YELLOW CIRCLE AND YOU WILL GET AN EDIBLE ABSTRACTION.

A Hundred Years Ago

asparagus omelet h

I have a short list of brunch dishes that I regularly make. I recently found a recipe in a hundred-year-old issue of Good Housekeeping  for Asparagus Omelet that I’m adding to my repertoire of go-to brunch recipes. It makes a stunning presentation, and has a wonderful texture and taste.

Often omelets are a little heavy, but Asparagus Omelet is not like the typical modern omelet. The recipe calls for beating egg whites into stiff peaks, and then folding the remainder of the ingredients into them.  This omelet incredibly light and airy with embedded pieces of asparagus.

The omelet was so thick that I didn’t even try to fold it over like the typical omelet, and instead just turned the unfolded omelet onto a plate (actually I turned it onto a baking sheet) and cut into wedges.

Still Faking, Finished Baking

😋 HELLO BEAUTIES. THIS COULD BE A GOOD AFTERNOON-SNACK FOR ARTISTS. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO BE A LANDSCAPE SPECIALIST.

Hockney 2

I carried on with the painting I started yesterday, a fake of David Hockney’s “Going Up Garroway Hill” that was the subject of Ed Sumner’s Friday lunchtime Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. It’s been good discipline for me to do this weekly challenge throughout the pandemic. It’s been really great the amount of things that have sprung up across the world during lockdown. Painting isn’t something I normally do much of so it’s been useful to learn and improve my techniques and also studying famous painters and analysing how they do their work. There’s probably another hour or two before it’s finished – although I could keep on refining it all week, but I won’t.

And today I baked a classic Madeira cake. I read many years ago that the mark of a good Madeira is a crack across the top. It has that, so I’m pleased. I’m…
