My cousin Tim is an artist extraordinaire who creates elaborate urban settings with detailed maps. As a child I watched him do this with pencil to blank paper. He must have quite a collection of notebooks. But at some point he began working with MS Paint. He recently shared with me his latest creation and when I have his permission I hope to share his work and the stories behind his world. Meanwhile, I had to update my hardware and I “discovered” that I had Paint on my machine. I told Tim, “You create maps. I can’t even make a straight line.” He told me about holding down the shift key to solve that problem. He promised to continue sharing his maps with me and I mostly promised to share my adventures with 21st century technology that most people have known about for ages. Between tutorials from young cousins and Youtube videos, I may continue to delve into this digital art world. Meanwhile, here’s my fun for the day. Be well. 🙂

Photo inspiration:  One morning a friend kept forwarding all of these dark chocolate recipes. One recipe was for a dark chocolate souffle and I remember thinking, “I don’t want to make the souffle, I just want to eat it!” In the end, I went to the refrigerator, found a lingering bar of dark chocolate, and decided to cut up one strawberry on top. I took the photo and set the plate aside thinking I’d leave this little treat for someone else but amazingly enough by the end of the day, the plate was empty … and my craving for chocolate was satisfied. 😉

After working with words all day, all I wanted to do was play with food all night.

Red onion, roasted red tomatoes, sausage, and sprinkle of fresh parsley.

I found the seed on the table this morning. I placed it in a little dish because you never know what you might do with a seed, right?

Part of the fun of playing with watercolors as I’m researching and working on papers is that there are writing rules I must obey on occasion but I don’t feel constrained with the watercolors. I can get up from the computer — good for my back anyway — and just dab paints and water on papers and see what happens.

Nope. Just a wet paper towel as I played with watercolors today.

I was having trouble getting myself going this morning so I sought some inspiration by playing with my food. 😉
