Illo Friday – Nourishment

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “Nourishment” which coincides nicely with my plans for tomorrow afternoon. While we have to paint the woodwork in the bedrooms to get ready for holland blind installation next week, I am also planning to cook up a big pot of stock ready for the wintery season of risottos and soups. I can’t tell you how cold this house gets at night. We crave soup.

  1. OK, so not only are you busy doing unbelievable illustrations, blogging, Softies, house renos, getting an exhibition ready, being a Mum – you also make your own stock?!
    I feel like the total slacker.
    Make mental note now to self to get busier.

    And absolutely agree with the Green & Black Organic Chocolate – in particular the one with almonds. I go through a block every couple of days. I should buy shares in that company.

    Love your work as always.

  2. Hot soup, yum. One of those pumpkin pies will warm you up,as well. And the oven heats the kitchen. One of these days I’m going to participate in Illustration Friday, or so I keep telling myself. Is it true you have no furnaces in Australia? What about a fireplace? I’d love to live somewhere where you didn’t need a furnace.

  3. Great illustration! And by the way, just as I pulled up your blog, I took a bite of my all-time favorite chocolate … Green & Black’s milk chocolate. Their chocolate is the best. Hands down. It’s perfection. Yummmmmmmmm!!!!!

  4. wow I like the colours and she is so cute while carring that big pot:) by the way “have a good meal “;)

  5. What a lovely picture. I love your art. I come here most often just to see if you have posted another picture.Homemade stock is a staple in my house as well. Enjoy.

  6. I love it!
    It’s funny to think that you are going into the cold season, we are just starting up the hot season here. I am even sunburned as we speak, with the A/C on!

  7. so cute and it captures the idea very well!
