WIP and Food

A bit of art and a bit of food today! A good combination in my world...
I discovered a whole bunch of childhood photos of myself and am having fun working from them for a few paintings. Love how this drawing has turned out and can't wait to start painting today!
I was glad to read that I'm not the only one with trouble getting back into routine once it's been broken. One of the things that helps me is cooking and last night I made one of our favorite summer food: Baba Ganoush.
I had shared the recipe a few years ago in this post, along with a recipe for preserved lemons and hummus. We mostly eat it with cut up veggies like cucumber, carrots, radishes, or jicama. Easy to make and so delicious!

Happy Friday!!


  1. It looks delicious! I love hummus, although I don't get to eat it very often. Never heard of jicama, what is it?
    The drawing is beautiful - such a dreamy smile!

  2. Ah Silke!
    I love that sketch! Heck, it's great as is---emotes a lot and has that wonderful dreamer quality to it. You go GIRL! As in, Girl who is the featured Birdie on the Brave Girls Newsletter today!!!


  3. Yes I am just like you described. I worked a retreat last week-end and took me until this Friday to get back on track. I am working on faces but nothing worth showing yet. I did post my latest acrylic Hydrangea in an Old Bucket a few days ago.I copied your recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  4. hi silke! your drawing is so lovely, how fun to find those old photos. LOVE that recipe, we also make it often.
    i am having a hard time getting back to routine after having been gone over 3 weeks! but i know it takes time.

  5. OOOooooo YOU are the featured birdie today!!! I must go look. How did I miss that? Oh yes, shamelessly promoting myself! When I first saw this sketch, I thought, Ahhhh what a beautiful child. Of course it is you!!! Do you know how much you grow and become more every single day? You are amazing. **happy smiles** Deb

  6. Sketch is great!! I am a big fan of baba ganoush!! I will hunt down that recipe!! : ))

  7. What a fabulous sketch - you draw hands very well, I see. :) That baba ganoush looks absolutely amazing! I love Middle-eastern style dips. I could probably eat hummus all day long!

  8. Been poorly so not visited for a while. It's a good job we're both married, Silke, because I think I've fallen for that young lady! Can't wait to see how she turns out though I can't see how it csn be better than the sketch.

  9. Glorious one.I also watch the recipe. Its too good....
