30 Days of Food In Watercolor

Pomegranates – Day 30. Thank you to Charlie of World Watercolor Group for the food November prompts. I didn’t think about it when I started, but painting food everyday is out of my comfort zone.

Spaghetti & Meatballs

On Friday, after posting my limes, Charlie at doodlewash.com reminded me that I was “invited” to dinner. Here is an excerpt of Charlie’s original invitation: “I’m inviting all of you over for dinner, because seriously, how cool would that be?
