We went out to dinner recently with some close friends, to Enoteca in Adelaide which I highly recommend.
There were 9 of us and afterwards we went and saw the Ukulele playing, Lady Carol at the Garden of Unearthly Delights for the Fringe Festival and the whole night was such a treat. You can see from this ceramic and mosaic wall hanging, I do like eating out and do so often which is a constant source of material for my paintings & sculpture as well as the Artwork blogs, as is everything that I see around me. The title of this artwork is “The Grass is always Greener on the other side”.
In this artwork that is exactly what both the man and the dog are thinking about.
Every night we eat out, ‘that’ is how my husband feels about whatever he has chosen to eat. As the food passes by him to their rightful owners he looks longingly at every plate and with wistful eyes and sad voice bemoans the fact that he should have ordered that instead. Always cracks me up inspires another artwork.
One of our companions on the night, a very dear friend, is currently recovering from a triple bypass but you would never suspect this from looking at him.
THE ART OF RECOVERY
Never have I ever seen someone 7 days out of hospital walking all around the city and shoe shopping with his wife, dinner and lunch in different eateries and to top that off he has just spent 4 days at the Clipsal car race.
What’s with this man does he not realize he has just had a major operation, lol, his luck is certainly holding. According to his doctors he could have dropped dead any time during the last 3 years, however being a non smoker would have certainly helped him.
He is, at the best of times, shall we say a grumpy little bugger, and was of course true to form, although I think the food and wine did pass muster that night. He made me laugh though with his running commentary of the salt content in everything and heaven forbid just a little grain of salt should ever pass his lips again.
Here is a little wisdom about friends from Oprah Winfrey that I like.
“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”
I hope you come and visit me again, till then happy painting and sculpting to you all!
