This is a detail of a still life painting by my mother, Elaine Wenger.
This week I converted my blog to what is known as Responsive Web Design – in other words, the blog should look good both on large windowed browsers and on small mobile phones. You can see what I mean by shrinking the corner of the browser page.

- First, I want to show you Robin’s cherries. This luscious photograph inspired a whole post that is still in my head. I will let you know if the post becomes reality. Speaking of Robin, if you have summery photos, you might want to participate in Summer Stock Sunday.
- Miriyummy reminisces on childhood memories of the Catskills. And be sure to read her interview with Batya Medad.
- Ilana-Davita has written of the 2011 Philosophy exam in France. Which question would you pick? I chose “Can liberty be threatened by equality?”
- Among other books, Rayna Eliana reviewed The Coffee Trader which transports the reader to Seventeenth Century Amsterdam.
- Laura at Pragmatic Attic has some tasty fish recipes.

Very nice colors. They add warmth to your post.
Thanks for including my post.
Thank you about the colors – someone once remarked that even though my mother and I choose different subject matter in our paintings (she often chose still life or landscape, and I love doing portraiture), our choice of vibrant colors (especially cerulean blue) is similar.
Interesting how you created a new image with a different feel by zooming in on that detail from the painting.
Thanks for the link!
Ah, the fun of looking at the details of art and not just the whole picture!
What a lovely painting! I can see where you got your talent BA”H!
I also enjoyed your informative post about Facebook business pages. Thanks for sharing your tips.
Thanks for reading my post about FB biz pages! Hope you found it useful.
Now I know. You got your talent from your mother.
I am convinced there is a gene for visual creativity – and yes, my mother did give me that one. My eldest son seems to have inherited the math gene from my husband and from my side of the family as well. My middle son and daughter got the creativity gene.
Thanks for sharing your mother’s painting, it’s the colors that get me, and the hint of fruit.
And thanks for the plug, soon you’ll be able to plug your own interview!
Nice of your Mom to pass down the talent..Mine didn’t seem to with me….Michelle
