D is for Dill Pickle. My favorite brand. I used to make cold pack pickles but it is hard where I live to get fresh cucumbers and dill. Plus, the last few batches I made, something went wrong...several quarts ended up spoiling, as if the vinegar or something had changed. Did everything the way I always had...oh, well. These fill the bill nicely...crisp and garlicky!
I will post 2 a day until I am caught up. The entire set of 26 "letters" will be available soon.
Feels great to have a challenge of a daily painting again! This challenge with my FB artist friends runs through October. My computer has been down this week and I will be scurrying to catch up with my posts...A through E paintings are done.
In the beginning of this blog I set a goal of one small painting a day for one year. While I didn't reach my goal, I did complete 125 small daily paintings. I still enjoy the tiny format and do them when I can.
This is my 30th year as a professional painter and yet with this new goal I feel like it's a new beginning. I am very excited. Each daily painting will be auctioned on eBay starting at $100. So, without further ramblings I launched the first of 365 little oils on October 22, 2007!
