BREAD

My family enjoys participating in cultural celebrations from around the world.  None of us grew up with any sort of specific cultural traditions aside from spaghetti night or BBQ on Father’s Day.  So each year we adopt Chinese New Year, Oktoberfest & even the Day of the Dead as our very own.  Chinese New Year gives us an extra 6 weeks or so to make plans for the upcoming year (Yes, we really are late to everything –even making resolutions, ha).  Dia de Los Muertos offers us a time to tell stories about those we’ve lost.  I’ve lost a lot of people lately, and it is a great comfort to take time to celebrate them.  This next Call is interested in that same celebration.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Las Laguna Gallery (Laguna Beach, CA) for Day of the Dead–work that reflect the theme of Dia de Los Muertos. $25 entry & open to lots of media…

Madone au Voile Blanc
Photography
ODILON was born in Paris and felt heavily influenced by classical music, ballet dancing and the Masters of painting. At the age of 16, Odilon suffered from anorexia. At 17 she began using a camera to make self portraits. It was simply a way to give her a glimpse inside herself to make sense of the pain with which she struggled to understand.

"Taking action is far better than thinking, for me. Photography saved my life."

FAVORITE FOOD:

Almonds & Carrot Cake

If you have something to say, you should say it.  Anonymous food & restaurant reviews are cheap shots.  Have you noticed that only BAD reviews are posted by “anonymous”.  If someone has something good to say, they post their names in all CAPS.  I am hopeful that this next Call will redeem the notion of posting, or in this case exhibiting, anonymously.  How will your work stand up on its own?

I kicked cable TV to the curb.  Because we travel for work, no one really watches specific shows very often.  So, we have a Hulu account & Chromecast PLUS there’s a Redbox® just down the mountain.  The result?  Now we watch more movies and consume more popcorn.  Isn’t that the law?  A movie must be accompanied by popcorn, right?  This next Call could be an excellent way to put my new movie-watching obsession to good use.  Take a look…

Confluence of public health and food labeling took a step forward when nutrition facts were added to processed foods.  I promise I won’t go into my issues with processed food or the FDA this time.  The fact that nutrition facts exist on packaging leads me to believe that the interest of both the food industry and consumers can merge into content labeling regarding the origin of food as well.  Fingers crossed.  This next call is a Confluence of art and fine craft with an excellent retail opportunity.  Investigate…

FERNS

How many perennial vegetables do you know?  There are a few like asparagus & horseradish that aren’t strangers, but there is a whole world of beauties like Jerusalem artichokes, Egyptian onions, Good King Henry & yummy ostrich ferns (aka fiddleheads).  Doesn’t the idea of planting a vegetable once and harvesting for up to 20 years sound like a dream? Granted there are the complications of disease control, smaller harvests & garden takeover, but sometimes one planting can be fruitful for years.  This next Call only happens once per year, but it could pay off for years to come.  Investigate the options…

My family is tired of eggs (aka the e-word).  We have lost access to farm fresh eggs temporarily, and as a result, our 3 dozen eggs per week have become a chore.  And, we are not quite sure how to do breakfast without eggs.  We have the occasional pancake day, but eggs (scrambled, fried & poached) are the norm.  We are trying to figure out how to break our food patterns & consider non-traditional breakfasts.  Patterns are captivating for a reason, and this next Call wants to see yours.  Investigate this opportunity…
