Produce from Mexico - Art from Connecticut

After finishing this drawing, the ingredients became my dinner. The eggs and avocado were a rich appetizer. The pepper, tomatoes, and tomatillos were sautéed with a Swai filet, the tomatillos giving the dish a light lemony tang. It was one of those "feel-good long afterward" meals. My appreciation goes to Mexico, our southern neighbors who grow such wonderful produce.

Tonight. . . the beans.

This is an 8.5" x 11" drawing done on scratchboard that is made and sold locally, by a small company that sells toys and art supplies for children, Melissa & Doug. My thanks to them. The child in me is thoroughly enjoying their art materials.
