This week's DPW challenge is "The Root and Bulb Challenge". As I was heading out to the grocery store it occurred to me pick up some carrots if they had any with the tops. Luckily there were some organic carrots with the longest tops and greenery I've ever seen. Like most vegetables they were put into the vegetable drawer in the refrigerator. Later while working at my computer my husband approached me with the carrot tops hanging from his hand..........to let me know not to store carrots with the tops on.

Today was 46 degrees, sunny, snowy, perfect to paint plein air. So skipped out of the studio to enjoy the outdoors. Hope everyone was able to get some fresh air today.

I was feeling melancholy thinking about my Brother and Mother. So may this rose represent those lost but not forgotten and to take time reminiscing., it felt great.
It was only a bud it never blossomed yet managed to be outstanding.

What a way to start your day. This was the beginning to my creation ""a bowl of breakfast. In a bowl put a layer of fried hash browns, cooked scrambled eggs, then add sauteed onion, green pepper, bacon or sausage, tomatoes and whatever else you have. Top this with cheddar cheese and melt the cheese in the microwave and enjoy. Over the summer the Hammy Slammy became my favorite breakfast to buy when traveling. Guess what the only difference was it had ham my choice of meat for breakfast when eating out.

SoldWhat a struggle to get the light hitting this correctly. The thing about painting sometimes you must walk away. This is what happened with this painting today it is a success yesterday it seemed like a failure. Darn good thing it was so pretty as a bud it's wilting and not going to open.

SoldNot sure where this melon came from, it lacked flavor, this didn't surprise me, this is not the time of year to buy melons in Michigan. Although Pinckney is my home town, Howell is just North of me, they celebrate melons with an annual festival, we take them pretty serious around these parts. Melon slices make a great painting bringing back memories of warm summer days. This could really cheer someone up over the winter months.
