Yesterday (Saturday) I had guests for dinner. First time for years that i cooked for friends. I decided to serve a 3-courses-menu: 1.Tom Kha Gai / 2.Pizza Serano & Pecorino / 3. Cajun Chicken with tomato-gravy and fried peppers. It was really fun to prepare this and it was good to have a one-day-break from painting. I did feel too lazy today to start my new large painting as planned but it was fun to paint some sketches. Here they are:

Gestern (Samstag) hatte ich Gäste zum Abendessen. Das erste Mal seit Jahren, dass ich für Freunde gekocht habe. Ich habe mich für ein 3-Gänge-Menü entschieden:  1.Tom Kha Gai / 2.Pizza Serano & Pecorino / 3. Cajun Hühnchen mit Tomaten-Sauce und Bratpaprika. Es war viel Spaß das alles vorzubereiten und es war ganz gut, mal einen Tag Pause vom Malen einzulegen. Heute war ich zwar zu faul, um mein neues großes Aquarell wie geplant zu beginnen, aber es war schön, ein paar Skizzen zu malen. Hier sind sie:

Four steps of a intuitive and meditative sketch. Starting with a white sheet of paper I let the colors lead me to the next step. This is a pretty associating and relaxing painting method.

    1. Yeah, this has been nice. I did not cook for friends for years and it was about time to restart this nice tradition again. And it was good to have a short break from painting ( just to see that it is not possible to stay away from it for more than one day  ) I have been a little bit moody lately – it is always good to do something different then. Thanks so much, Margaret – and: Happy painting!
