While in Lebanon last month, we attended a beautiful engagement party where the most picturesque food was served, including fruits and vegetables so fresh and pure, that we rarely see here in the United States. I was happy to see cherries, as I have a special place in my heart for them, since they represent Door County, Wisconsin, a favorite spot. These had an interesting purple stripe, which I've never seen before.
In other news: I am so excited that the TV production company for Chicago Fire has rented another of my paintings, "603 Sunflowers in the Sunroom." It's a small gesture that validates and motivates this artist's work, and for that I am very grateful.
