Gouache bird

A little gouache painting. I find it hard to scan gouache.
The surface is much rougher than watercolor and in scan it creates an unwanted pattern.
 This is a photo taken using my iPhone. 
Do you have a favorite method to scan gouache?
I would love to know :o)

Purple potatoes

Have you ever seen purple potatoes?
 This is the first time I see potatoes that actually have purple flesh, not just the skin.
 My sister got them from farmers market.
 They taste like regular potatoes, but are very high in anti oxidants! 

Have a lovely Friday and weekend friends!

Gifts of autumn

I love combining natural elements with clay. Since there are many oak trees around the area that we live,
it was easy to get inspired.

I made my first batch of clay acorns back in 2008...time flies by fast!

These make a great autumn gift.
 They are available here.

Golden kiwi

I have discovered a new fruit recently; Golden Kiwi!
First I was reluctant to buy it since it didn't have a hairy skin and kind of bald.
 I thought it is a regular kiwi that is not very fresh.
But at home I realized I was very wrong!

This fruit is my new favorite!
 It is softer, sweeter, less tart and yellower that a green kiwi and extremely juicy!
