Fall Flame Sunflower is drying on the easel in the studio on a Sunday evening. Today we took a rare trip to Central Market and picked up delicacies that were totally unnecessary and thoroughly awesome such as three kinds of cheeses from the South of France, a fresh cherry cobbler with crunchy brown sugar topping, "real crab" California rolls, freshly made lobster ravioli, and of course an obligatory bunch of gorgeous sunflowers. It's a good thing we don't live closer to Central Market, we would not be able to pay the electric bill. Today was an especially timely event, since it was Meet The Cheese Week! The ladies at the free cheese sample tables raised their eyebrows when I went back for thirds, claiming the extras were for my husband.

And you thought I was just kidding
about it being cheese week, didn't you?

What a beautiful sunflower, Nancy! And now I'm wanting cheese and green olives too. No. I'm not pregnant. Just want cheese and green olives.

Your sunflower looks so feathery! I like it. French cheese? I didn't know we could buy it here. I'm so jealous...
