Completely Pinteresting: Watercolor Kitchen Art

My little Jack has been really into painting lately.  When I am not commissioned to paint trains and Lightning McQueen or Super Heroes, I’ve been having fun playing around with stuff for me.  The lovely Yvette Van Boven, cookbook author and illustrator extraordinaire, made this illustration that I pinned a few days ago.  It’s pretty much a perfect explanation for how this blog really got started.  In December I wrote a post sharing about my miscarriage that I had in the fall, which led me to the kitchen (and this project/blog) to get my mind off of it.  Life gave me a serious lemon, and I decided to make croissants.  (But croissants doesn’t work with the lemon theme of my painting.)  I’m not saying you should stuff your face in order to ease pain in your life, but baking is therapeutic and gathering friends around to eat all of the food I make is pretty therapeutic as well.

I don’t claim to be some fancy artist, but I thought my own interpretation would be a lovely sentiment to hang on a wall in my kitchen.

While elephant mug is adorable, it’s not necessary for a successful watercolor endeavor.  Also, I am terrible about centering things I paint.  So, it’s far from perfect, but it means a lot to me.  I like the little flaws, actually, and the fact I cannot paint a lemon meringue pie very well.
