Hello Friends! I have some beautiful local art to share with you!
Pictured below is the work of Kristin Fritz. She makes these beautiful pieces using
brown paper grocery bags and walnut ink!
Next is the work of Tangie Belmore. Tangie works with collage, raw silk, and cement to create scrumptious textures. Her pieces are really large and it makes me wanna play with a giant canvas. This piece is silk and cement, even more beautiful in person. This is a collage process she was demonstrating. She buys gel medium by they gallon for the size of collage she does.
I love spending time with these ladies! They are both Uber talented, fun,
and always inspiring! Be sure to check out their blogs.
Black Bean Brownies
1 package Ghiradelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix(or any mix really)
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
Empty mix into bowl and set aside
Put the rinsed black beans back into the can
and fill it with water til it just covers the beans
pour beans/water into blender and puree
Add bean puree to brownie mix, stir and bake
according to package directions.
After brownies have cooled I like to frost them with homemade chocolate icing.
This may sound a little strange but I promise they are REALLY good and a little healthier than your average brownie. You won't be disappointed. :)
Wishing you all a happy art filled week!
