Pasta Mia

(click to big)

You should have seen the looks I got when I walked into my favorite pasta place aound noon today and asked if they would mind if I took a couple of quick photos of their (fresh daily) pasta. I think they would have been happier if I had said I wanted to steal some. Especially when I told them, actually, I wanted to paint it. Uh...yeah.

Wonderful pastas and sauces if you are in the area of 
Ibn Gvirol and Lincoln 
(pronounced the local way "Leen'-ko-lyn").

Wonderful watercolor. Love how the red checkered tablecloth and sign separate the greens from the yellows.

I started photographing a lot with the intention to paint; now I photograph even more, and paint a little. I love how you got the folds of the checkers in paint. Well executed.

so did you eat it as well as paint it? I have a hard time painting food unless I get a plate of my own to consume! love the abstractness of the shapes and composition. By the way, I tagged you on my post today - play if you like!
