Gourmet Brain: Science Fiction?

Today’s Monoprint!  Woke up ravenous.  Fed the cats and birds–then decanted last night’s wonderful homemade ham and lentil soup into containers.  Made by my husband-he’s the king of soup! ( it’s great cold-eating over the sink ) So!  A food theme.

I love odd factoids about brain science.  Which should be a clue.  I have spent many an unprofitable hour looking for facts/explanations/justice? in the occurrences of life.  Happier now to think that it is what it is.  Move on. Enjoy your day! Eat something YUMMY!

The etching plate/chine collé on the left side of this print was hand-colored with Rotring inks–wonderful, transparent color. No longer made. You can find them on eBay sometimes.  The foods depicted are another insight into my soul (food).  Seafood!  Turkey! Waffles! I also adore tiny little nibbles-party food-savories.

Hungry now-time to start today’s adventures.
