Golden, Sweet and Heavenly Take-out

A Golden Comfort Food

“The Golden Egg”, in Portsmouth NH, was an inspiration for this painting.  It has inspired me to paint other comfort foods that will add to the collection of my “Coffee Talk” series. This restaurant always has  several delectable desserts, sitting underneath glass pedestals, at their counters. The staff is always friendly and very accommodating to their patrons.

My husband and I will always stop at this restaurant after a morning of walking along the beach picking up sand dollars, searching for sea glass, or just to take in the salty air from the ocean.  It has been a habit of ours, after we’ve eaten a great breakfast, to order these coffee rolls to go.  What caught my eye for such a tasty treat?  Well, I scanned the menu and saw “Big Coffee Roll”, I believe.   I thought, “I haven’t had one of them in a while!”, so I ordered one for each my husband and I.  The next morning as we were getting ready for the day, I heated the coffee rolls and set them on the table for us to eat, but before we ate them, I had to do one last thing…take a picture of the coffee roll so I could paint it.  (It isn’t uncommon for me to take pictures of everything, especially food!  My family would agree.)  😉 THEY WERE HEAVENLY!, better than I have ever tasted!  To this day, we always order coffee rolls to go and we always enjoy these treats as if it were our last.  It’s great to have special treat made with TLC and I consider it a great gift for them to share.

Seaside Treasure

A Glimpse in Time

A walk along a sandy beach

with footprints of every size.

The waves move forth to catch the prints,

and bring them back in time.

Odd little pieces of driftwood,

and colored nuggets of glass.

Contribute to my understanding,

through nature’s casual past.

Every granule of sandy beach,

represents a whole of life.

A shell, a bottle, a piece of rock,

or a plank from a ship in plight.

A heart-shaped stone so smooth and weathered,

Can measure the ocean’s caress.

Green seaweed hangs upon the rocks,

As a symbol of duress.

The tide pool is playground,

for crabs and starfish too.

The periwinkles stick around,

to keep the company true.

Nature has its beauty,

in every glimpse you take,

the sea, the shore, the sandy beach,

It gives you inner strength.
