Two different art works side by side. On the left is a black and white painting of a woman's head, shoulders, and chest. She has her hair in a large bun atop her head, and round thin glasses. Her left hand is visible coming up to brush her chin. Past her neck is a long sleeved black shirt that is done with water colour so it has a blurred, dripping aesthetic. On the right is an abstract piece with blues, pinks, black, and a mustard yellow strip on the right. It is done in water colour, and all the colours blur and drip together. It is painted on a white canvas.

Blueberries and avocado on heated kale, with olive oil and lemon juice. Yum! Thanks Westberry Farms for the amazing blueberries!
