Picasso said to be a good artist,
never copy yourself.
Well, I’ve been breaking that rule.
My friend Joanne who owns
Grace Manor Bed&Breakfast,
(click on the link to see the fabulous-ness)
is opening an Art Gallery and I get to be a part of it!
I first met Joanne when she bought
this painting from me.
It’s hanging in the Mexican themed room.
So, I have been busy copying myself…
and more boxes
my prayer cards fit perfectly inside
these boxes take me about 16 hrs to make.
And some icons…
and then…something a wee bit different,
And I will be able to show (sell)
some bigger pieces, that I can’t sell through etsy.
And I am not done yet.
I am so excited for people to see my art,
and touch it…
It is so much glow-ier
in real life.
Besides all of that artfulness,
I made tomato sauce an easy way.
I will quick tell you whether you are interested or not.
I got a crate of tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market
a couple green peppers
a few onions
and 4 bulbs of garlic (bulbs, not cloves)
wash and cut in chunks,
toss in olive oil, salt, pepper.
Bake at 350 for an hour and half.
(I made 4 baking dishes)
Then just pinch the tomatoes and their skin comes right off.
I put it all in a big pot on the stove on low,
added a can of tomato paste,
and stirred it every time I walked by.
Here’s what it looks like chunky (the way we like it)
If you are a no chunk family,
you can run it through the food processer.
This sauce almost cooked itself,
and roasting the veggies makes the sauce so naturally sweet…MMMmmmm.
Try it, you’ll like it!
