Not every food fad is a good one.  I am still waiting for jalapeno poppers and chicken fingers to go away.  But, if farm to table/plate is a fad, I hope it lasts forever.  I am so inspired by how much better the options are out there.  And if you happen across a town that already prides itself on food, well then you’re in for  a food fantasy.  This next Call explores the food to plate issue in a beautiful format.  Take a look…

BANANAS

Everyone has to eat on the run sometimes.  Not every meal can be separated into  courses that stretch out over 2 hours.  But, compact meals don’t have to be of lesser quality just because they are rushed.  My favorite all-in-one breakfast is bananas with crunchy peanut or almond butter with a few berries chopped for the top. Compact but quality–just like this 4 in 1 Call.  Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES: Still Life

for miles

I cannot eat enough watermelon these days. And, I am intrigued by the variances.  My town has ONE grocery store, and the markings indicate that most of the watermelons they carry come from a single source.  So how is it that 3 melons of equal ripeness bought on 3 different days taste SO different?  One is super sweet, one in grainy & one is ripe, but tangy.  This next Call is for Still Life where the presence of fruit is ubiquitous.  Did you every notice how rarely you see watermelon in those paintings?  Contemplate that when you choose your subject matter…

CALL for ENTRIES: Soul of a Woman

EGGY

How is it that quiche became girly food?  I was at a cafe recently that specializes in quiche.  The waitress was reciting the day’s specials to a neighboring table of guests when the man interrupted her to say, “I’m not interested in quiche; I’m a MAN.” Really?  It is eggs, cream and cheese.  I thought, “Maybe it is due to the pie form.”  But, men eat pie, right?  I don’t understand his reasoning, but I restrained myself from asking for the sake of the man sitting at my table.  Maybe this next Call is looking for the quiche-goodness in women only.  Maybe.  Investigate…

Jellies, Painting by Megan Elizabeth
Jellies
Painting
The work of MEGAN ELIZABETH reflects an attitude of experimentation, analysis of the elements of accident & a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency & overlapping of ideas. Washes in the paintings, elements of spontaneity & use of collage are fundamental in many of my works. My inspiration comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature & the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. Much of my work has been derived from experiences living in Spain, travels in the Caribbean and in Europe & growing up on the east coast of the US.

FAVORITE FOOD: Chocolate
