I am always looking for ways to pass time right now. So what better way than at the Metropolitan museum of art? I figured I could get some inspiration.
|This guy was carrying a basket of fruit - wow did that make me hungry!|
|I love this whimsical tree.|
|Love the bright colors and dramatic shapes.|
|This day-dreaming girl reminded me of myself.|
|"The Lovers" by Chagall|
|A woman at her easel.|
|Quite dramatic African Statues.|
|And of course, hooking up to TPN in the middle of the museum!|
|Asian art always makes me feel very peaceful and centered.|
|The Joan of Arc painting has been one of my favorites here for years. The colors are just so vivid. She looks so lifelike. Her eyes are striking.|
|The painting is called "Outburst"|
|A beautiful stained glass window|
|It's a girl (made from white string) standing on a hill (made of plastic wrap), holding a balloon with her heart.|
|The heart is made out of collaged magazine words.|
The next day, I woke up with a ravenous appetite that as usual, I could not satisfy. So I made a Spinach Ricotta Tart for my family.
|Sunny side eggs and toast for mom|
|I'm really into the black gesso I have!|
I also worked on this piece a bit:Sweet Potato and Black Bean Empanadas.
|Chock-full of yummy sweet potatoes, black beans, cheddar cheese, and mexican spices|
|I was so impressed with myself that the dough actually rolled out well!|
|Crimp the edges with a fork, brush with egg wash, and bake at 400F for a half hour.|
Pepperoni Pizza Bread...
|Since I was on a black gesso kick - I did this backdrop too.|
