Kale Radish Watercolor


Finally, after several months of not painting, I took out the watercolor paints yesterday. You can see some inspiration from this photograph of radishes, kale and nuts; the clementine on the left was in a different still life, and I decided that bit of orange would add to the painting.

Basil Pesto, Garden Fresh


When the basil grows large enough in the garden, it’s time to make basil pesto. Add nuts, olive oil and salt to basil leaves, and you have a pesto that can be served on pasta or with steamed vegetables such as cauliflower.
