May have been a touch misleading with the title
but couldn't really come up with a witty title
I tried but that is the best I could come up with
which doesn't bode well for the rest of the post does it
but here goes anyway...
I decided to do a painting based on a soap wrapper that I saved
from like two years ago
and I loved this soap
it was Italian and lovely and smelt divine
a bit like showering in fruit salad
not actual fruit salad
because that wouldn't be pleasant
and now I have an image in my head
of cowering in a shower while being bombarded
by watermelon and kiwi fruit
in fact it could be down right dangerous
especially if the watermelon was whole....
But the fact was that this soap
almost changed my extreme dislike of peaches
I am not quite sure when it started but eating a peach
goes against my life long belief that you shouldn't eat anything furry
not old cheese, questionable Chinese left overs, cute pets
or any condiment that has formed a furry crust
if it is furry
I am sooo not eating it...
so the only good peach is a tinned peach in my book
and yes I could peel it, but I figure life is too short to be bothered
not very gastro chic I know
but those things are creepy and don't get me started on the freaky pip....
tin that sucker and save us all...
The soap however was gorgeous
and it was a mother's day gift from two years ago
and after hoarding it I finally got in and used it over the summer
and have started the campaign to have it replaced on Sunday
you know Mother's Day
are you reading this Phantom and Sinus?????
may have left it a bit late to hint about this one
but it is worth a shot even at this late stage
call me an optimist...
My favourite part of painting this though
was that I got to use my Twinkling H2O's
which give it this great shimmer
that really doesn't scan
but trust me it is there
painting with these little pots is serious fun...
If you would like to check out more great work
and Artists Play Room where the theme was food related...
and this is kind of food related right
it smells like food at least... xx
