This morning dawned warm, sunny and beautiful. It seemed wise to get outside as early as possible and enjoy it before I had to go to work. Perhaps for this reason I awoke at 7:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. This gave me a chance to get to the North Market early and enjoy some coffee in the sunshine before I purchased some arugula and mache from Combs herb farm, some "mizspoona," a green similar to mizuna, but with a broader leaf (pictured above) from Toad Hill Organics, and a potted chive plant from Somerset Herbs. I'm going to have to get some planting done soon!
Because it was still early, I decided to check out an event I recommended this week, the CCAD Spring student art sale. I bought some Japanese style ink drawings (India Ink on rice paper) by Sara Richard. I love the juxtaposition of the creepy crawlies painted so delicately:
You can see more works by the artist here. It was interesting to walk around and see all of the students; some are quite prolific and make some great things.
