Edible Schoolyard is a fantastic program at First Line charter schools in New Orleans. The kids are involved in every level of planning and maintaining the gardens, and the food is prepared at their cafeterias, where young folks interested in the culinary arts can work with local chefs to prepare the foods they have grown and harvested. Their online auction is open for bidding, and there are some fantastic hand painted watering cans for bid, including one by yours truly. Check it out:

Mini paintings make fantastic gifts. A little touch of original art that is reasonably priced and very transportable makes a unique statement that will add to the personal touches of someone’s home or office. Send me a favorite photograph of a flower, tree or landscape and I will create something just for you. At this point, I could not guarantee it would be ready before Christmas, but think about birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, or the best of all: a gift for no apparent reason.
Gallery 924 is a local art gallery here in Indianapolis. They are looking for submissions for their 5th annual TINY exhibition. These are three of the four pieces I’m working on for submission. They will be for sale after the exhibit, assuming that the gallery accepts them. These pieces are 5″ x 5″ each, and would make nice Christmas gifts. They are very easy to ship, unlike large canvases. The fourth one is a little more complicated and I hope to finish it this evening if I have time. Mondays are simply horrific at my full-time job, especially when we only have four people working.
I can’t wait to see this sunflower that’s about to happen. Our garden goes through so many fantastic changes from year to year. I planted some orange sunflowers this year, and now that the lilies have come and gone, it’s on to sunflower phase. I intend to keep checking this beauty every day until I see orange. I must say, though, that this is stunning to me just the way it is today.
