Scoville Scale October 6, 2015

Sneaky small pepper

Spiced up butternut squash soup

Burst of capsaicin.

Art Prescription:  I got a load of peppers from a friend. Green peppers, jalepeno peppers, and some small slender peppers I thought to be mild. I proceeded to put four of those babies into my cream of butternut squash soup and whoa baby those peppa’s packed some heat. It was good though, not too hot for us to eat, but next time I may remove the seeds and just have the lovely flavor without the after-burn, lol.

And Right There You Are October 4, 2015

The shadow of fall

There’s the promise of sunsets

Don’t need a passport.

Art Prescription:  Found poetry. Scan a magazine and look for words or phrases that speak to you. Cut and paste into your journal, or as I’ve done here onto an index card.

October Rain October 2, 2015

October comes in

With big buckets full of rain

Studio warm, dry.

Art Prescription:  I love the sound of rain on my studio roof. So soothing as I lay down watercolor washes. Big clouds hover over North Carolina, but looks the hurricane is going out to sea. Fall is upon us…nice cool weather.
