I bought my first painting by an artist I’ve never before met.  She works with watercolor primarily, but also had some oils on display.  I love her color pallets; very bright without losing the detail in each image.  The one I purchased is on a small canvas, but I hope to buy one of her larger framed pieces.  There’s one that reminds me so much of the farm up north.  It’s a grape vine with some withered grapes – they way they look in the spring before new growth has taken over.  

We took the train to Fuel Pizza down a few stops.  It’s a neat place with great ambiance and very affordable food probably not found on the typical food pyramid, but good for the soul, if not the body.
