My wife the artist.

My wife Gina is an artist but she does not work with pencils, or watercolors, or clay or any of the traditional art mediums. All of her artwork is done in a material that I call "Zest for Life". She puts a little artwork in everything that she does. I especially realized that this morning as I was leaving the house. I collected the lunch that she prepared for me from the refrigerator and as I turned around I noticed the little basket that she keeps on the kitchen counter. It is where she keeps the odds and ends that she uses in her daily cooking and it changes from day to day. It usually contains an onion or two and perhaps a ripe tomato, a head of garlic, and some chilies of different varieties. This morning it looked particularly nice so I grabbed my camera and took the picture that you see below. It is one of the things that endears her to me. It seems like whatever she does is worthy of a picture.

Bob I love that you notice the little things that your wife does in such a creative fashion. What she does is make the things she will be needing daily readily available. Indeed, artistically done. I like that. Take more pictures too, it's always fun when you take pix of your home life. Take care.

What she has done with the ordinary everyday items is lovely and it is even lovelier that you notice it.
