Burnt Soup Story

Well – that big pot of stock became soup this evening and was sitting on the stove simmering while I read Amelia some stories and, thanks to still being a bit of a novice with electric cooking, a huge amount of pasta stuck to the bottom of the pot and burnt. The house is full of that evil burnt food smell. Big-P has just gone out to pick up two small pizzas. What a waste of stock! What a sad shame. It smelt so good just twenty minutes ago. I called my mum to moan about it and she said in all her wisdom “Ahh, life is full of burnt soup stories.”.
Thursday all of my files go off to the printers for proofing and then for final printing in time for my show. The show starts on June 16th at Hudson Clothes, 229 Carlisle St
Balaclava and goes for four or five weeks. I will definitely have all the work up online for viewing and sale shortly after the 16th. I thought I would feed you a small tickler:

    OH OH i get to be the first comment! I LOVE that image… love the textures… (as always) there so much 3Dimensionality(?) to your work with the new darker palette you are using… 🙂 Also, I was just admiring some cute artwork in Hudson the other day and thinking it was such a lovely little space 🙂 I will be sure to check it out from the 16th… x

    How enchanting. Will you post an invite with more details closer to the opening? I might have to venture to another part of town 🙂

    Can’t wait to see all your work online – I must have a piece(s)!! I wish I could be there in person to see it all but I can’t get down there.
    Love your Mum’s words of wisdom about the soup.

    Your Mum’s comment made me smile and think of at least 20 burnt soup stories of my own. Even things that make you stomp your foot and yell seem ok in retrospect.
    Good luck with the show, I look forward to seeing the works online.

    I’ve never burned soup…but I’ve burned many things over the years. In fact, I just burnt some pasta…it has a sweet stinky smell. I was so annoyed because it was so beautiful before and now I have to scrap the pot and pan. Dang!

    Oh hey, I can totally get to Balaclava, it’s just around the corner. Yay, I will go and see the marvellous prints!
    Top job on the burnt soup too, it happens to the best of us (of which I am more in the vacinity of ‘worst of us’).

    It’s wonderful! You’ve really grown leaps and bounds from when you began this site. You’re such an inspiration to me! Thanks! I’m only boo-hooing over the fact that I’m not in Australia to see your show!
