Tomato Gorgonzola Soup Recipe

Marj has posted her recipe for tomato basil Gorgonzola soup on her blog.  Just click on it to enlarge.  I just made it and it is yummy!  Thanks, Marj.  While you're there, check out her happy and colorful watercolors.

Salt and Pepper Shakers at Applebee's 
I thought I might paint my dinner, but I ordered a messy looking, delicious  salad, and we had to hurry to make the 7:00 show. We saw The King's Speech.  Great movie. And it was ladies' night  -  $4.25!

Today in class we worked on loosening up and letting the painting paint itself.  We painted with clear water and then put in color.  Even though it was a simple geranium stem and blossom on a small piece of paper, it is still hard to relinquish control and let it happen. Watercolor on its own usually does better than I do, so I try to stand back and see what happens.

Sooooo cold here.  The wind is blowing, the Bay is frozen, the sky is gray.  Every year I complain about the cold, but I'm not going anywhere.  I like the slow pace of winter here  -  then I like the fast pace of summer.   Perfect.

Lovely blog posts, as usual. I want you to check out my post for February 16. I did this painting, then realized it was from your book! I had it in MY watercolor sketch book and tried it in acrylics today. I did not show the whole composition, just a "detail" of what I did and I gave you credit ... If you want me to take it down, I will. Hope all is well ... NC has been beautiful these past few days - sunny and it smells lovely outside.

Your sketch of the Salt and Pepper shakers is wonderful... so was The King's Speech.
