Chef Still Life – Watercolor

I painted this one two summers ago, from a photo by KreativeK at WetCanvas.  It’s one of my favorites, since I really don’t do still life paintings.   Look Ma!  No Ink!!!  **gasp***

I’m still working on KC paintings, but I don’t have anything to show you today.  I did box 25 sets of postcards this morning.  I still seem to have so much to do.  I am determined to make this show a success.  I am really glad I reserved a beautiful hotel suite for the trip, so I can finally take a bit of a breather and just enjoy the experience when I get there.

Willie Nelson to Receive Honorary Doctorate

March 19, 2013

Paging Dr. Nelson, we’ve got a severe case of “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain.” OK, so it’s not the medical kind of doctor, but Willie Nelson will be presented—along with Carole King and Annie Lennox—with an honorary doctor of music degree by Berklee College of Music.

The presentation will be made during Berklee College’s commencement ceremony on May 11. Annie Lennox will deliver the commencement address to the crowd of graduates and their families at Boston University’s Agganis Arena.

Berklee’s honorary doctorate recipients are recognized for musical achievements and influence, as well as lasting contributions to culture. Previous honorees include Duke Ellington, Aretha Franklin, Loretta Lynn, Bonnie Raitt, Alison Krauss, David Bowie and others.

    What fun! My daughter is a chef so I can appreciate the humor in this piece.

    I’m catchin’ up again!!! Love the chef, but the iguana is awesome…I love that you hid it so you wouldn’t have to paint the feet. Your postcards for KC are wonderful. I would think they would sell well! These shows you do sound so interesting.

    I also like that bowl. How did you treat it after you used the ink. We had a bowl fundraiser here once and different artists and students in the local HS made bowls, the local restaurants filled them with small samples of their food, and then they were sold. They made a lot of money.

      Thanks, Joan! This is really my first show, not counting a little booth at our local art walk years ago. The bowl…. I did it with Sharpie, then sprayed it with a ceramic sealer. Then, just for good measure, I shot it with another clear sealer and ended up with some blurred spots. I may not be able to save it. But, I still have time to do another one if I can’t fix it. So goes life. 🙂
