It's martini time again! These olives are deliberating... gin or vodka martini's. I know a real martini is gin. And yum about that, right? Especially my favorite, Hendrick's Gin. Not that I drink a lot, but (like the guy in the commercial for Dos Equis) when I DO, I like really good stuff. Ahem. And about that.. I have another painting trip coming up, and one of my friends from that group is with me on the hunt for the PERFECT Cosmo. The palest shade of pink blush. Chilled martini glasses. Really, don't even think about ice (unless you're in the South and it's truly hot!), because with that cold glass, and the shaker full of ice - that baby won't have TIME to warm down. So I'm going to be practicing making them. I'm going to get tips from the bartender at The Boat House Restaurant in Tiverton, which, if you are ever in the area... you should go. This is turning into a drink and restaurant critique... so, let's get back to those olives!
*SATURDAY* is the Girls Just Wanna Paint Opening!!!
SO hard to photograph! I loved all the greens in them. At first, because I just was reading about this awesome artist who does this, I tried mixing up my colors right at the outset. The problem was, I kept thinking the green was GREENER than it is. It's almost a yellow, an ochre-y yellow. And the shadows are dark, but not as dark as I initially thought. So... I'm back to mixing as I go. So what if it's not as quick? I'm not quick. Take it from me that these babies look so much better in person.
AND.... I was the featured artists in the YWCA's publication "She Shines". Learning a lot about giving interviews..Pin It
