Yesterday, I helped my best friend Kathy shop for dinner. She is probably the best chef I have ever experienced and, she makes it harmonious and fun.

While she was cooking and her husband puttering, I went after the asparagus with creative intentions. Later and at home, I added my own ingredients. Damn, fruit is fun and vegetables make for mean, sculpted line work.

Last, I have not touched anything but Dr. Ph. Martin watercolors. Once a troubled step-child in my arsenal, they are now my primary medium of choice.

  1. Fantastic illustration! Rather tame and orderly, this one, but no less terrific!
    I have three bottles of Ph. Martin’s, that I found on sale at a little art store that was going out of business. I love them and intend to get more eventually. Your comfort with their use shows.


  2. The colors are brilliant and you seem to have good control with them. My first food photography assignment was walnuts and asparagus (not together, though). I’ve photographed asparagus over and over but never the walnuts. Hmmmm!

    1. Hi Sheldon and good morning. I miss my work too! School has zapped me raw. The beginning of the year has been terrifying with gruesome horror stories from my kids. I will get back in the swing, have a creative urge and will get going.
      How are you?
