Good Morning

November 28, 2007

I woke up this morning feeling sort of achy and tired, did a light version of my usual exercise routine, and realized I was starving. I walked down to the corner bakery with every intention of just buying a baguette (which was bad enough) but when I came out I had a croissant too. Oh dear – only one way to exorcise the guilt – turn this into an art project! Needless to say, it was a quick one, because I couldn’t wait to tear into that croissant. And now I’m feeling positively virtuous, having done a sketch first thing in the morning…..

    Love the painting, but more than that, I can taste your fabulous French baguette and croissant. In NYC the bakeries get close, but there isn’t anything as satisfying to me as buying and eating bread in France!

    wow… i´ve never picked up my colors or pens so early in the morning.
    It seems, you had the same difficulties as me, when I was starving and drawing the sushi. But I wasn´t as disiplined (do you say that in English???) as you. I always ate the pieces which I had drawn. 😉

    What I wouldn’t give for one right now! I am on my 2nd cup of coffee wondering what I should eat with it…..and now I know…there is no way I’m going to go downstairs and eat a slice of packaged bread! The painting is lovely and the colors so beautiful. That croissant is begging me to reach in and grab it!

    Well after all that, you deserved to eat the croissant! Panne au chocolats are my weakness – every Sunday morning.

    Ever try eating fries off someone else’s plate? No calories so guilt free. Sure wish it was that easy. Your breakfeast looks very colorful and yummy.

    What a great way to assuage the guilt! Uses calories too, all that sketching. Love your painting of the chataux/castle(?) below too. And I admire your tenacity on the drawing skills. My brain goes to mush when I get into measuring and proportions, although I know I’d do much better if I just knuckled down to learn.

    That croissant looks so tempting, Casey…and I envy your being able to stroll a short distance to a bakery. I must drive an hour and a half to get good French bread and other pastries. (But maybe that’s a good thing, at least for my waistline!) Lovely little painting!
