"Chicken Marsala and chocolate cheesecake"

Chicken Marsala, pasta, bread crust and mushrooms on 11” Royal Albert Old Country Roses plate

I couldn’t get into the studio today but I was able to channel some creative efforts at a long postponed birthday dinner in my honor. Thanks D & F (and M). It was a truly memorable evening! I hope Walter has slept it off.

Mark,

Mom never let me play with my food. She was always telling me to go eat my crayons. I enjoy the humor that you bring to your blog. Come by my blog for a laugh. Look for link to Thechesterandcarlshow. My goal is to be a member of Dailypainters.

Rick,

It must have been tough growing up a TV heartthrob in the 50’s only to find yoursel…What? It’s Nilson? Oh…never mind.

I respect anyone who can paint architecture well. There’s a nice Hopperesque quality to your outer banks paintings. Some, like “Dowdy lane boathouse” and “No wake” even take on a Maurice Prendergast feel. Your sense of humor is certainly in evidence in the rooster and chicken paintings and the wren pieces are strangely compelling.

I never had luck with plumbago; it doesn’t do well in Reisterstown for some reason. I miss those cobalt blue blossoms.

Mark,
I was a fun party. Special thanks to my muse Ms. Marti for her charm and beauty. The drunken weiner dog just got a bath and is much fresher than he was last night. Keep up the good work.

Mark,

Thanks for visiting my site and the comments on my work. I had to look up those 2 guys to be sure that you were just talking smart and not insulting me. Now I'm going to have to move that plumbago.

Rick,

I weren’t tryin’ to be all highfalootin’. The art history buff in me comes out sometimes. I wasn’t implying derivation, merely reflection.

Mark,

Derivation? You must be reading my mail.

Thanks again.
