Why, oh why, are there so many ovals in my kitchen?! Arggg!

Paella Pan

I've always had an affinity for a paella pan. No idea why. Possibly my several-generations-back Spanish ancestry...? This one is a no-frills (well the red handles are something) get-the-job-done paella pan.

Mine. Wish I'd gone a little darker on the "screen" before pulling off the masking fluid. For those of you who are watercolorists imploring the use of masking fluid, I recently bought a ruling pen and have been using it to make thin lines and shapes. I feel like I have more control over placement this way.

I am officially just over the 1/3 mark of my "365 Days in My Kitchen" series. When I started, my sister-in-law asked me if I was worried about running out of things. Nah...I said. Now, I'm not so confident. Despite these three illustrations, I think produce will be my saving grace.

365_1010 Popcorn

Not sure what to say about popcorn other than if you are a mircowave popcorn eater, I urge you to pop a batch at home straight from the kernel. You won't turn back. It's kind of like going from "baby carrots" to peeling your own carrots: night and day.

365_109 Banana Coins

Really it's just sliced banana, but when our boys were little (well, littler), my husband would call these "banana coins" because it's just more fun to eat coins, isn't it? I dunno. I did used to love those little chocolate coins when I was little...

Have you noticed my many steel, clear and white objects? I think I like these colors/materials in real life and I like the subtle tone variations used when painting them. This may have begun MANY years ago in a high school photography class where we had a white-on-white color assignment. I photographed white eggs on a gathered white sheet.
