The Bounty

The Bounty, 24x20 oil

What do you do with so many apples?  Make applesauce of course.  Actually, if you're creative in the kitchen you can make all sorts of things.  Recently I've discovered some amazing chutneys, that go really well with  meatloaf or pork chops.  Unfortunately, although I would love to, I have not made any.  When I have well ripened fruit I tend to make cakes or breads with them, or my husband throws them into smoothies.

Measuring Up

Apples, apples and more apples.  I have so many apples in my fridge at the moment; I better start baking.  Good thing Christmas is just around the corner.

One a Day, 24x30 oil

One a Day, 24x30 oil

December is here already!  I'm looking forward to Christmas and all the hustle and bustle that comes with it.  I've hung my final show of the year, (contented sigh), at the Good Earth Wine and Food Co., (goodearthwineandfoodco.com).  I've been so busy getting ready for the show that I haven't had the luxury to just sit here at my computer and write my blog.  

I am super pleased with this painting, 'One a Day'.  Every time I look at it I smile.  Shiny, fresh beautiful apples, just washed, sitting on a tea towel, so simple. but says so much.  It stirs up wonderful memories of picking apples as a child, or my mom's fantastic apple pies.
