Where's The Beef

On St. Patrick's Day, Mike and I celebrate by making the corned beef and cabbage traditional meal.  Although we are of Italian decent, we actually love celebrating this feast day.  While the beef was cooking, Mike tried two different ways to cook the beef, one in the pot, boiled, the other baked. I couldn't resist doing some quick sketches of the cabbage, potatoes, carrots and onions.  Hence the title.  Happy Painting everyone.

    1. Hi BJ,

      You make me chuckle, you are so right about the lasgna. This year it was just the three of us, so we made it simple.

      All the best to you,

  7. Hi Joan.
    Lovely Watercolour my friend. I also loved your previous Flower painting. Both lovely paintings. I agree with Hilda, you do paint lovely watercolours, but also Oils and Acrylics and----oh! you are an all round good Artist. I went out plein air today, brilliant. All the best Joan.

  8. This is so nice - reminds me of Cezanne and his watercolors. I hope they cooked up and tasted as good as they were painted!
