Food art

Once upon a time I wrote a food column that I also illustrated, for five years. Every so often I get nostalgic for my foodie days, so I go back to the kitchen of my imagination. I painted one last night but couldn't stop. When I finished the sixth one, I forced myself to stop because it was 2 a.m.


  1. Love it! Isn't it great when you are so happy to paint , that the time goes by so fast you don't even know it?!!!

    ....just paid a visit to your foodie shop....and now I have to force myself to stop eating!

    Lovely little illustrations simple...very nice!

    I am still struggling to leave comments...but won't give up without a fight!

  3. Radish by Karla Kushkin

    Write about a radish
    Too many people write about the moon.
    The night is black
    The stars are small and high
    The clock unwinds its ever-ticking tune
    Hills gleam dimly
    Distant nighthawks cry.
    A radish rises in the waiting sky.

    You have a lovely blog.

  4. Hi Colette, a beautiful radish painting and I love the poem too! I hope you have a happy week!
