The kitchen as garden
with flowers. (Okay I'm tempted to add dude!)
I spend a lot of time with teenagers in my
work and their way of talking rubs off. (Add
another dude here. As in Dude!)
Friends have been awestruck by the riot
of colour created by our floral friends this
week. Ah forget it. What happened? The
flowers from last week didn't die. We thought
they would, so we bought more, and last
week's beauties stayed with us. Plus I actually
planted pansies in the pots at the front of
the house and you've got to pick those
every day (dude!) and bring them in.
So tonight's drawing is of the most gorgeous
red parrot tulips in my kitchen. I wish I
had time to paint them, but it's early to bed
tonight -- it's my early class tomorrow.
series tonight. That is I painted on the
orangey/brown ground, but realized that
I was way too tired to draw my next image
on the canvas. So I'll wait until tomorrow.
I am dreaming of this series now. It's pretty
Have a maybe-we-should-get-some-flowers day.

Dude! That is so awesome!
Great drawing there. Really, very nice indeed. The live ones look splendid in your kitchen. Never apolgize for having the good taste to fill your home with flowers. That sounds like something Katherine Hepburn would have said. Hehe
Excellent drawing, dude! Wish I had, like, tons of flowers and stuff.
Your kitchen garden is luscious! I always like your line drawings and this one is especially nice.
Wonderful detail in the drawing! Your kitchen looks so inviting...no doubt reflecting the qualities of it's hostess with the mostest.
Wow! That is a lot of flowers. Most festive kitchen I've ever seen. Looking forward to seeing your flower series. I know it will be eye-poppin'
Dude, I'm so glad you like it. The live ones have now caved. They don't seem to like the winter then summer then winter weather we're having. Yesterday winter, today summer.
My mother's generation used to think that those weather changes made you sick. They don't but they do cause serious fashion challenges.
Jala dude, I love your sky paintings.
They're totally awesome man, like I can just stare at them man and totally space out! Dude.
Thanks so much. I love your work. Send me a picture of yourself via email. I want to know what you look like. This avatar is making me ridiculously curious. Sorry. Portrait painter.
Thanks so much. I'm delighted that you like the kitchen. I'm an enthusiastic hostess, but I don't cook except every other night. So I always need an assistant, preferably the excellent cook I live with, to pull off a party.
I hope you can come to one of our parties sometime.
Dude I'm working on a people series. Flowers are a sideline. That is I like painting them and do paint them, but they're not the main event. In the house though, they play like a major role dude. That's because Toronto is blessed with great flower stores, and those tulip pots were 3.99 each, or about 3.75 American. So Dude, you like can't not fill your kitchen with them eh! Love your work dude.
