Impossible Garden: Ghost Squash and Other Projects
It wasn't too bad stir fried with pork, beans, and sesame oil, with soy sauce added. The next day I fixed it like mashed potatoes. After all, it IS white. Not so good. It just doesn't get creamy like mashed potatoes.
I guess the lesson is when you plant a seed--or start a project--you never know for sure what you will get.
And speaking of planting seeds/starting projects: I'm planning to apply to show my silk paintings at the Blue Heron Art Gallery. The person I spoke with was very encouraging. This is a huge step for me. I've shown in a group show there once or twice, but was accepted on the strength of the group, which included several well known local artists. This is my first time applying to show in a "real" gallery on my own.
I didn't realize until this morning how terrifying this is. When I woke up with a headache, it took me a long time to realize it was a panic headache, and that the panic is around this application. Lets see, what did Kelly Rae say about dealing with fear? Oh Shards, now I have to clean up my desk to find my notes, or open the PDF. I guess that's the topic for my next post.
