Gloria J Zucaro's " Breakfast From The Pantry"

Today I am linking to Jennifer Maclean's  The Artists' Playroom, The Daily Paintworks and Paint Party Friday. 

The theme for the Artists' Playroom is to paint something from your pantry.  Several mornings a week I have a banana, some Wheat Thins and a tablespoon of peanut butter as my breakfast.  The peanut butter and crackers are in the pantry, the bananas are on the kitchen counter, does two-thirds pantry fare count?!  

On the Daily Paintworks Jo MacKenzie challenged us with picking one of our favorite Daily Paintworks artists and trying to paint in their style.  Jo picked Nora Macphail and so am I.  Nora's work is full of joy  and color.  But I will tell you, Nora is a very accomplished watercolorist!  After I did this sketch and watercolor, I realized how good she is!  Thanks, Jo and Nora for your inspiration. 

Paint Party Friday is always fun to visit.  Every Friday there is a featured artist and many more artists who sign in with their artwork from the past week.  So Happy Paint Party Friday!

  1. You paint. I find painting amazing because I can't do it. My hand will not put on paper what my eyes see. I love your banana. I'm enjoying the Artist's Play room.

  10. Lovely painting, just fits the bill for APR What's in your Pantry and such gorgeous colours. Just had a little banana like that with my lunch!
    I agree with your comments about Nora McPhail - she is so very, very talented, and I never miss checking out her post. She really has a special touch.
    I admire your loose style, quite different, but your own kind of special.
