Lunch


Lunch, originally uploaded by nora_gardner.

My sense of smell is beginning to return. The sniffles are a little less. It's more like a golf ball up my nose now, not a baseball. With my sense of smell back I can taste things for the first time in days, and I was desperate for good bread. Man may not be able to live on bread alone, but I would make a case that man could live on bread, milk, and fruit alone... at least, I could quite happily....



I finally took a picture of this door that I really like. I wanted to sit and paint it, but in the shade on the other side of the street it was about 25 degrees and windy, so only a photo. When the weather is better I want to paint it though.... right now I think sitting in the wind and the cold would probably bring back the disgusting drippy nose and make the cough more ear (and throat) splitting.... my daughter is complaining about how my cough woke her up this morning.... well, tough luck little one, mum's got a cough and is very tired.

Very nice little painting of wonderful bread. I'm glad you're feeling a tad better - it can feel like quite a slog, sometimes. nancy

Ooooh, it really looks like bread! I mean really! Wow. I find it rather difficult to draw recognizable food.
I also like the picture of the wall and door a lot! Great colors.

Very nicely done sketch. Looks like it should be on the front of a restaurant menu.

Your drawing of the bread is great and it looks really tasty to. My husband who is part Italian says that when he was young, he used to go to the bakery and ask for the bread "that made your gums bleed"--in other words that crusty chewy good bread!!

Lovely painting of some very tasty looking bread! I'm glad to hear you're feeling at least a little better!

Glad you're better, though just in time to paint a wonderful piece of french bread...my favorite. I used to buy 2 at the store - one for home, one for eating in the car on the way there! Yum.

Oh, that bread does look yummy. Beautiful watercolor. Now I want to go do some baking!

Great colors and texture! I could almost hear the "crunch" sound of it :)
