Pizzeria

Well, now for something a little different from cows…I still love cows, don’t get me wrong, and you’ll be seeing more of them, but I needed a break.
This character spoke to me…he said “Paint me”…
I can’t take credit for the great reference photo, other than creative license with cropping and placement of certain elements. It’s from my friend, Fraser Koreluk’s stash of travel photos, and he kindly gave me permission to paint it.
 I’ve worked in restaurant kitchens for most of my adult life, and the pose, the look of concentration, are so familiar to me. I also loved the light, and the old-town look of the stone oven.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
