Fruit Salad at LibertyTown
Here’s my Fruit Salad triptych as hung at LibertyTown on First Friday. I love how the photos work arranged vertically, especially in that space, right outside my friend Beth‘s studio. You might notice the red sticker, indicating that the triptych sold, and while I was there on Friday night! I mention this not just because it’s always […]
There’s one gallery show that inspires me to create something new every year, and that is, of course, LibertyTown‘s Feast for the Eyes. Determined to refine the technique I used for last year’s Blood Orange, I scoured the produce section for translucent fruits or vegetables, and wound up with grapefruit, star fruit and kiwi. I […]
Happy Repeal Day!
Happy Repeal Day! And thank you Catoctin Creek for the beautiful patina on your still; also of course for your amazing spirits.
New Art Prints: Two Sugars
Introducing: two new art prints! And they’re both about sugar! Raw Sugar Sugar Cube You have two ways to see them in person this weekend. First is this Friday at LibertyTown’s First Friday reception for their 6″x6″x6″ show. All of the pieces in this show fit in a 6″x6″x6″ space, frame and all. I created […]
Blackberries and Peaches
One of the best things about summer in Virginia is fresh fruit. Until our own ice cream muskmelons ripen, we’ve got plenty of local farms to keep us fed and happy. This weekend we picked blackberries at both Miller Farms and Westmoreland Berry Farm. Some of them even made it into our buckets! Miller Farms […]
Happy National Doughnut Day!
I hope everyone is enjoying their National Doughnut Day! I would’ve gone to Paul’s, but Krispy Kreme is more photogenic. They’re also more free-doughnutty today.
A Feast for the Eyes
Get out your calendars, because you’ll want to get down to LibertyTown Arts Workshop in Fredericksburg this Friday, April 1st. My piece above, brilliantly titled by my wife as “Meloncholy”, has been accepted to their annual “Feast for the Eyes” show. If a room full of art about food wasn’t enough, there will also be […]
This is an ice cream musk melon; so named because, when cut in half and cleaned out, it’s the perfect size for a scoop of ice cream. We grew this melon from seed in our garden, along with many other fruits and vegetables that will get some attention here when I get a chance. For […]
Each Summer, I get to spend at least two days with great food and friends: Independence Day at my house (see: last year) and a Swedish Midsummer celebration at Casey‘s house. This year, the July 4th main course was made by Dixie Bones, and I couldn’t be happier about that. If you’re looking for photos […]
