It's Christmas time at Jean Haines's Online Art School www.watercolourinspiration.com and to come into the right mood we start with Santa Dogs in a row. My composition had a free space on the left side and so I decided to let my boys singing under a Christmas tree.


Ich wünsche Euch allen eine wundervolle Adventszeit mit viel Zeit zum Geniessen. 

Herzlichst

 How can people say they don't eat eggplant when God loves the color
and the French love the name? I don't understand.

Another wonderful vegetable for the "healthy month"  at Jean Haines's Online Art School www.watercolourinspiration.com and my Veggie Series. Eggplants were the first motives I have painted in watercolor many, many years ago. I love all about this wonderful fruit.

Trying taking part in Artist's Photo, You paint it! the challenge at SAA, but I, unfortunately, missed the correct date.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Emily Dickinson - 1830-1886

"Simple Things" is a school work area at Jean Haines Online Art School www.watercolorinspiration.com and the actual challenge is painting just two simple cauliflower leaves. It's an amazing exercise, with so many structures and colors, so many possibilities for the light. Some of my vegetarian models have gotten a bit old because I can't keep up with cooking for all that painting. But the beauty of the withered leaves just inspired me to wilt Jean's wonderfully fresh cauliflower leaves. Another candidate for my Veggie Series

A brand new candidate for my Veggie Series inspired by the "vegetable month" at Jean Haines's online Art School www.watercolourinspiration.com and what a!! Cauliflower might be the most versatile vegetable. It is a real all-rounder when it comes to versatility in preparation. Anything goes, from Mexican to Indonesian. Youn can roast it, steam it, grill it like a steak, puree it like mashed potatoes, or grate it and eat it like rice. Cauliflower is a whole lot more than just a side dish, but is also great for easy meal prep and exactly what we need to carry us through a busy week.
