I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Here are a couple of sweet little Valentine paintings I just finished. They look cute together, but I am selling them separately.
I had my parents over last night and I deep fried a bunch of crab rangoons and about a million chicken wings and I put the wings in bowls of several different sauces and we all tried to decide which ones we liked best. We washed it down with bottles of cold beer and it was a lot of fun! It was very unhealthy, but I got a deep fryer for Christmas and so I had to break it in. ha ha
Tara heads back to Mizzou tomorrow and I will sure miss having her around. We mixed up a bunch of soup mixes in individual portions for her today so she can have easy hot lunches this winter. I used recipes that use potato flakes, powdered milk, chicken granuals, spices and such. The potato soup is acually very good, and so easy to prepare--just mix with water and simmer.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
