Some quick paintings of my Nishiki road bike, built in 1990 or so. (Spot the old-timey lugs on that thing.)
(My apartment really is just filled with bikes and vegetables, in the best SF style.)
I’d never seen a persimmon before I moved to San Francisco. The first one I encountered, in a CSA box, was a total mystery. Eventually, I learned — slice them super thin, like potato chip-thin. Or roast them like tiny squashes, and eat them like cobbler.
I’d intended to paint pomegranates this season, but they just never spoke to me. It might be something about their lumpiness that made them unsatisfying to paint. Maybe next year I’ll try again. For now, it’s all persimmons.
Last season: avocados.
The last vacation of the summer! We crossed the seas to attend a family wedding in beautiful Malta. I took a lot more photos the last time I was there.
In this episode our travelers journey from NYC to coastal Maine.
Old friends in Portland. Toddler rain boots. Lighthouses. Lobster roll #1.
We drove up the coast and detoured slightly for lobster roll #2. Many subsequent lobster rolls followed.
Then back home, with a stop in bucolic Harvard, MA. Breakfast and hiking and lunch with old friends. Then car, subway, plane, home to SF. (With a few days in NYC in there.)
