"Kitchen" Lynn Cohen

Welcome to the first of our new drawing theme: "Kitchen" suggested by Lisa Richards. We will be drawing to this theme for fifteen days. March 1-15. Remember its okay to think outside the box.
Or IN the ice box if you prefer! ;-)

In anticipation of drawing in my kitchen yesterday I cleaned my stove top and herb area! Really, I did! I could not have anyone seeing it in less than pristine order! This is funny since I am anything but a kitchen maven or "good" house keeper. But when company is coming it gets a 'spit and polish'!


Get ready to read a lot about organic vegan eating in my coming posts! We'll start with my stove top where I prepare my meals. I sautĂ© a lot of vegetables here. I've drawn my row of spices and herbs that sit along the back of my stove. That ceramic "carrot" spoon holder between the burners was a gift from my daughter when she was a little girl. I have never even thought of getting rid of it for something newer. It's even been glued back together after a fall. Very dear to me.

    1. Thanks Ann. My daughter, now an adult, asked me why I still had it. I told her I kept it because once a sweet little girl gave it to me as a gift and that I have treasured it ever since.

  4. What a fun looking sketch. It looks a lot like our stove top except that we have a ceramic red chili pepper spoon holder. Very nice.
