365 DAYS IN MY KITCHEN: 300 + 301

Anemone. Spelled just like the sea creature, as far as a can determine.

A Peach. Pure taste perfection and so pretty and soft too.


It’s been quite a while since my last post and it’s been slow going on the 365 days in my kitchen project. I would probably rename it to “365 Days in My Kitchen over 730 Days”. Hee hee. Ironically, I started this project as a way to ensure I put in daily painting time, as running a creative business is so often full of non-creative work. But I’m thankful that what’s keeping me busy is work, family and a bit of travel. It could be much worse!


365 Days in My Kitchen: 293 + 294 + 295

IKEA Coffee Mug: It’s my favorite. Just right. Not too big. Not too small.

Ice Bunny: Mom bought it for my boys when they were wee little to help their boo-boos feel better. It is still put to good use.

The Boy: He is in my kitchen often, and quite the good helper.

Just managed a quick sketch of our kitchen island on the iPad before falling fast asleep.

mistletoe / monica loos


Yes! Mistletoe still hanging around. I have it hanging from a thin wire on a collage art piece made with paper from an oversized calendar.

arugula / monica loos


I have to call it rúgula, which is what it’s called in Spanish. I hear my mom’s voice in my head with her cute Colombian accent at the sight of it.
