Horse Painting in the studio with Texas Artist Laurie Pace, #lauriepaceart #horsepainting

I was working after our Valentine Dinner last night.  Too full to think about bed, so I wandered off into the studio to pick up where I left off yesterday morning.  Life got in the way of painting yesterday. Terry had sprayed all the varnish, I was trying to catch up on email and work on the AOT website and finish up my new site and time flew by.

By noon yesterday I was starving for some reason and made my favorite veggie shepherd's pie.  It is so simple to make and so satisfying to eat.  First I scrub three large organic russets, then cut them into bite size pieces and boil them for mashed potatoes. While the potatoes are cooking, I sautee some onion in just water, then add frozen organic veggies of choice. Our  choice was a veggie mix with pea, carrots etc and then some broccoli and squash. As that cooks I mix up some cornstarch and water and slowly add that and some seasoning to the veggies.  Once they are done, I put them into a glass pan for the oven.  Immediately I mash the potatoes with vegetable broth and a little salt and put the mashed potatoes on top of the vegetables.  Pop it into the oven for about twenty minutes... and oh my  is it good.  I use to love mac and cheese for comfort food, but this is my go to when I need that satisfying comfort.  Even Terry loves eating it.  That was our quick vegan lunch.  But for dinner, Stacey went and picked up awesome Mexican food for their household and ours and that is what has me almost moaning with 'full'.  Top it off with organic cherry pie and one single chocolate dipped strawberry and I would say Valentine's Day was pretty relaxing.

When we ate at lunch time, Terry put on the movie Giant.  I was curled up on the couch with my thick red thermo blanket, head in his lap and I went straight to sleep until Stacey called hours later.   We turned in fairly early and fell asleep watching East of Eden. 

Morning called early and I wanted to get this up on the blog before the day got away. I hope to paint more later today on another small painting. I have this urge to dibble back into two favorite areas... one is pathways and gardens and the other is figurative. I was a fashion illustrator for ten years and somewhere inside is the desire to paint the figure again.

May your weekend be blessed. May you be blessed to be a blessing to someone else.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35 NIV
