Part 2: Behold the Simple, Muffin Pair
Want delicious comfort food? Muffins. Blueberry muffins to be exact. My kids devour the little dollar packs of Martha White blueberry muffin mix! I know, I know, it’s probably not the most healthy, but we have to cheat a little. Mini muffin mornings are their favorites, especially slathered with some salted butter.
About the Collection: A Note From the Artist
The most precious memories and conversations happen around the table with a meal, a melted popsicle or a couple of slices of leftover bacon in the toaster oven. Hey, when you know you know! These meals do not have to be over the top (although I do love a gourmet dish), but oftentimes are the simplest, with the most significance.
I find that more and more I draw connections to people through different foods, flavors, and scents. When I prepare a meal, snack, or even beverage for myself or my family I am reminded of who I shared these with in the past. These memories have become more and more precious as people I have loved, respected, and cherished have moved on…or even started to grow up.
This series of paintings may seem simple, or reminiscent of pop art ideals; but, for me, they focus more on connections. Connections to people, cultures, seasons, experiences and keeping this in the forefront of my thoughts. This “plate” series will be released every Friday for the next couple of months through McIntosh Cottage Antiques.
