 Pichuberries

These caught my eye in the produce section at first glance, because of their color. I then noticed they hail from Colombia, as do my parents and many of my childhood summer memories. They are quite enjoyable. Mildly sweet and also a little tart. Like nature's Sweettarts. They grow in a little thin husk like a tomatillo and are shaped like raspberry-sized blueberries. A fun discovery that I may not have made today if I weren't on the lookout for something to paint.

A bird's eye view - assuming that bird is in my kitchen sitting atop the light fixture.

By the way, I painted this using this Schmincke palette that I came across while foraging for artist's tape in my husband's art supply stash. Turns out it used to belong to his mother. She used in in college (she studied textile design), which makes the set over 50 years old! All but a few colors are working nicely. Here's a photo:

First, let me say that I fell deep into vacation mode in July. It was lovely spending time with family, traveling and celebrating the in-laws 50th wedding anniversary! Thus my sparse posting the last few weeks. I'm back now and working away. Hope everyone here is having a good summer.guava / monica loos

Guava

Such deliciousness in such a little package. I made this image using a drawing app on my ipad. The 13 second, sped-up video of the process can be seen on my Instagram feed.

365_152 El Mango

There are more mango portraits in my future. Next time, I will not start at 10:30PM, but today has been one of those days.

Mangos remind me of my grandmother. Her favorites were avocados, but she did have a mango tree in her backyard (el solar) in Colombia. Also a loofah tree. Fond, fond memories.
