Through My Window



This week I've been busy enjoying making plum jams. I'm not used to making jams so this is a first and about time too, I'm loving it, experimenting with sugar content and different tastes to add to the fruit like rum and vanilla. 

So lots of fun over the cooking pots and sliding in art time too as always, where I look through my window that's still filled with late Summer bloom and I imagine the little creatures enjoying their lives in their world!


Linking to Art Journal Journey, Mix it Monthly and Paint Party Friday

Oh I do love plum jam, homemade jam is a bit of a lost art, I usually make raspberry jam but the summer was so wet and cold the raspberries didn't ripen well.

What a fun piece to remember the jam making and the last bit of summer! Those caterpillars seem exceptionally happy.

I like strong colors, so I like this. It would be great for a fabric design!

plum jam is one of my favourites... we are just starting to think about stone fruit arriving at the market... and even saw the first mango of the season today... all that lovely fruit is one of the best things about the heat descending so early this year... great painting... the colours are amazing

Your home must smell like heaven. Love your bit of whimsy and wonder if perhaps it was painted with a bit of plum jam. Delightful!

Lots of fun here, the little caterpillar people laughing as they explore this wonderful new environment of bright greens and reds. Your pattern of rounds and swirls and warm colours is so intricate. Wonderful artwork, Kat.

It is so fun experimenting with food. The picture looks like a lady's face. I don't know if that was your intention. It is so very creative (sort of like your cooking). Blessings, Janet PPF
