On Living Vicariously Through Art

I have started a new series of paintings!

Last month some friends with serious culinary and hospitality skills put on a delectable spread in celebration of The Hobbit's theatrical release. Sadly, I was unable to attend, seeing as I was back home holidayin' it up, island style, with my family. 

Fortunately, another friend (with an excellent blog to be found here) took pictures of the food. I decided that the next best thing to experiencing this Sadly-Missed Party would be to paint it. So here is painting number one, hopefully of several to come:

"Shropshire Blue." Watercolor, 7x9in. 2013.

What do you think—should I paint more food pictures?
