Fruit pie Pt. II

In this episode, I console myself with a fruit pie after running away from home.

The old hostess fruit pie

I have a couple of vivid memories about fruit pies. My dad used to go to 7-11 where he would purchase one for each of us 5 kiddos and we would devour them feverishly. Except for my brother, Brian. He always got the lemon flavor. And he ate it soooooo S-L-O-W-L-Y. So much so that the rest of us had long since finished ours, and were drooling for more. That's when he would tease us by making sounds of ecstasy while he savored each bite, even dipping his finger into the pie and licking off the gelatinous fruity filling with great animation.

Cherry was my favorite flavor

A couple of rainy days

I haven't had time to paint in my journal this week (yet!) because work has been progressing on the full-size versions of previous sketchbook paintings. Here they are. Prints of both will be in my Etsy shop next week. Onward to my journal. I've been sketching new ideas like crazy and I'm raring to go. Stay tuned, and have a great Memorial Day weekend.

All aboard for the goat tree express

My friend, Yvonne, sent me a photo of an Argon tree filled with foraging goats. Since I do love goats (doesn't everyone?) I was immediately moved to give it my take.
