I had a swell adventure yesterday on Tuscawilla Prairie at the Tuscawilla Cabin owned by the Alachua Conservation Trust

You can see photos on the Six Artists blog above.

Now I have lots of reference photos to take back to the studio and paint this glorious prairie.

Quote of the Day- 



Recipe of the Day



Crab and Corn Chowder:
(Disney Chefs)


2 cups heavy cream
2 cups half-and-half
1 cup milk
1 cup finely diced potatoes
1 cup finely diced carrots
1/2 pound lump crabmeat, picked over
1/2 cup corn kernels, preferably fresh
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup clan or seafood broth
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions
In a 4 or 5-quart Dutch oven, heat the heavy cream, half-and-half, and milk to a simmer over medium heat.
Add the potatoes, carrots, crabmeat, corn, salt, and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes, until the vegetables are softened.
Whisk the water and the cornstarch together in a small bowl. Add the cornstarch mixture and the clam broth to the cream mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, or until thickened.
Just before serving, stir in the scallions.
