At top left is a lovely loaf of pretzel bread, the bread of the month at City Bakery.  I was lucky enough to be able to buy one today even though I hadn't reserved a loaf.  The other three drawings on this page are from the bakery case at Greenlife/Whole Foods.  Number 684 is a from-memory drawing of a thing called a dog bone, which seems to be a Rice Krispy treat with chocolate coating in the middle.  The tiny berry tarts were gorgeous, with glistening blackberries and blueberries. 

I made pesto out of our basil crop this evening, and when I went to the garden to get the basil I grabbed the last of the carrots.  I drew them while waiting for the spaghetti water to boil.  I can't seem to grow carrots that look like carrots.  These taste fine, but they look more like ginseng roots or parsnips.  I even built a little raised bed so they could have deep straight roots. 


  1. They are Artist Carrots. Carrots free to grow from the creative confines of what society expects them to look like. :)
