|'Rain,' encaustic mixed media on panel|
i was also pleased with this work. this is the first of its kind
as far as showing the wood grain and the 'house' form cut.
i included vintage jewelry and indian blanket petals.
the lady is actually a lucian freud, if you're one of his fans,
you'd recognize it - the other eye is a boticelli.
with so much 'borrowed' from favorite artists,
i'm keeping her. i rather like her.
a bird hit our window the other day - but when greg & i went out to investigate
there was no trace of it,,, except its imprint on our window,,,
do you see it? very bizarre and beautiful.
there's a little bit of magic outside the door every day....
we've also had lots of rain and much cooler temps.
can this really be oklahoma?!? i'm not complaining though.
|right outside my studio door....|
and i have succumbed to the ultimate kitsch,,,
i had these johnny depp mugs made at walgreens!
greg & have been enjoying our coffee and tea from these special cups.
from now on i'm making my own tortillas
give it a try - they are so easy and delicious
tortillas ("little cakes")
for 12 each or cut the recipe in half for 6 which i did.
3 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 c. oil (vegetable)
1 cup of warm water
in a bowl mix together the flour, salt & baking powder.
pour in the oil and mix with your clean hands until it is well incorporated and crumbly.
pour in the water and combine until a dough forms.
cover with a kitchen towel and allow to sit for 20-30 min.
divide the dough into 12 round pieces and roll out as thin as you can!
cook in a cast iron pan or non-stick pan on med. heat for a minute or two
on each side. it will puff up a bit as you cook.
Have a great week y'all!
