Imagine my surprise and delight to find myself the featured painter on Robert Genn’s The Painters Keys web site today. HERE He had printed my response to his letter and I am always honored when he includes my unwise words. Then I scrolled down to see who he had selected for this week’s featured painter and it was me!!!!! I never imagined that!!

I am going out on a plein air adventure tomorrow with an old friend, Elisabeth Ferber from Orlando. A terrific painter. We will have breakfast together first and then paint at the farms in Marion County. I’m looking forward to it.

This is the second phase of the painting. I have used transparent oils for this stage. I use Shiva Permasol brand paints very thinly for multiple layers. Sometimes I will pull off parts of the oil glaze or use opaque paints to highlight an strengthen contrast in some parts of the painting.

This is one of the quick easy recipes which make ice cream and other desserts taste yummy.

It is great for poached fruit and flaky pastries.

I worked for a great restaurant in Gainesville, Florida years ago called Toby’s Corner. It was owned by Diane and Ed Toby. I was their dessert chef. I have fond memories of this restaurant. We used to crank up James Brown full blast on the speakers every night after the restaurant closed. It was a fun kitchen crew.

Dessert Sauce

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 jar ice cream topping- caramel, chocolate or butterscotch

2 oz liqueur- Baileys, Amaretto, coffee are all good choices.

Stir it all up and serve.
