Yum… cheesecakes

14 Aug

We are going to a friend’s cookout next weekend and I offered to bring dessert. I really like to bake- but generally don’t make the time and know that if the sweets are in the house- I will eat them. Kerry rarely has a sweet tooth but his favorite dessert is strawberry cheesecake. So, I found a mini-strawberry cheesecake recipe and decided to do a test run this weekend of the recipe. Luckily, Miss H and I are meeting up with friends tomorrow so I can distribute the strawberry cheesecakes there. Don’t worry- I will be leaving Kerry some too.

I need to add the strawberries- but they really are the perfect bite size.

Last Art Class of the Summer

14 Aug

I had my last summer session of printmaking today and it was kind of sad that it was over. I have enjoyed this art class more than any other I have taken in many years. Our teacher was fantastic and everyone in the class was so helpful and friendly. I now have a whole bunch of prints of the Grand Canal in Venice and a whole new appreciation for printmakers. I am very much looking forward to the next class and luckily the Fall sessions are longer.

Simple one color.

Three color but done with two screens.

Four color but done with two screens and using a painting technique for the red gondola boats.

An unfinished one.

One of my favorites.
