Guest Post: Artist's Palate

Food runs in the family. Thanks, Son, for the following--especially your amazing title pun.

I love looking at the pictures of packed meals at the Vegan Lunch Box--but because I am homeschooled, I usually don't have to pack my lunch. Today, to celebrate my first day of homeschool, I packed a picnic for myself.

I decided to pack the fixings for Faces, one of my favorite lunches. In addition to my bamboo spreader and a cloth napkin, I took rice cakes, peanut butter, raisins, dried coconut, two blackberries, a few cherry tomatoes, some sweet red pepper slices, and a few green beans. I also packed two tiny "donut" peaches that we found at the farmer's market.

I unpacked my picnic in the backyard and started spreading primer on my canvas.

Here are the portraits I made today:

And here is the sculpture:

I also like to make faces with hummus instead of peanut butter. Bean sprouts, carrots, olive slices, cucumbers, and broccoli pieces make great decorations.

Sometimes I make monsters with long teeth, aliens with antennae, and animals with whiskers.
