It's the long weekend! Does that mean lots of time for art or are you going to be busy with other things like camping, swimming, hiking, or a backyard barbecue? It's the "official" kick-off to summer whatever you do. As a kid at this time of the year I remember thinking of those three lovely, long months ahead of me with no school....just play.
Last night I baked a cake for HB (well, I might have had a teeny tiny piece, too!)
I made a Banana Rum Chocolate Chip Pound Cake! Doesn't that sound yummy?? I made it in a bundt pan rather than the suggested loaf pans and it worked just fine. Would you like a piece?
Sorry the pictures aren't too good....I was trying to take photos at night so the lighting wasn't terrific. And I don't have a fancy cake plate so I used one of our camping plates! No one ever accused me of being Martha Stewart!!!
I used a recipe I got online but can't remember whose blog I saw it on! This morning I went online and found the recipe here if you'd like to try it. It's DELICIOUS!!
Ok, enough of this kitchen talk! Let's get on to some art! I finished another piece, the last one, of the brown paper from my painting table. When HB saw it he said it looked like the wind so I named it Sirocco....
Now that I've used up all the paper from my table I guess I'll have to start painting some more backgrounds to use. And just so you know, I'm still working on the studio. I'll take some pictures when I finally get it organized....that should be sometime around 2020!!
Have a great Saturday!! I hope you have some sunshine and blue skies wherever you are....
