Sekrit Patron and I are doing a very slow illustrated cookbook of our own recipes, and this is the first finished recipe! Look at those tasty veggies, omnomnom.

Six paintings in this series now, amazing! All of the previous ones are in their new homes, but there’s a print set that will bring them all to you. Or, of course, you can take this one home and start your own collection of crows.
The figure in this one is particularly eerie, and the tree is beautifully bent by a wind you can’t see but can only imagine. The crows are weathering the mist with equanimity, waiting to ride the breezes off to wherever they roost.
Above, you can see the eerie little figure waiting beneath the wind-twisted tree. Below, this painting lurks in its frame, a moody little scene just waiting for a wall.

If you’re still having apocalypse feelings, here’s another vision of a terrible future for you!
The shimmering blue moon has a fissure at its heart, and another mysterious light shines through the clouds high above. The skies are charcoal and violet with whatever destruction came through, and the buildings are blackened ruins. Greenery crawls up the sides of some, while others still smoke or are ochre with rust.
Whatever city used to stand here, there’s not much left.
Above, you can see a close-up of the ruined gherkin building, and the iridescent paint on both it and the moon adding just a bit of light in the smoky darkness. Below, the painting sits in its frame looking innocuously non-prophetic.

Only 3 pieces into the Formations series, and already it has broken away from the subdued dichromatic palette of the first two.
A motley of subtle colors play together in this rocky planetoid, and two different sets of formations are highlighted, in interference red and blue, colors that only reveal themselves in certain lights.
This map is filled with mysteries!
Above, you can see the winding red ways, the hints of shimmering blue, and the strange bloom of green on the surface. Below, this tiny planetoid is in a frame, waiting to bring its mysteries to you.

Labor Day is over, so here’s some art to start your week!
The last rosy blush of sunset gives way to bands of color in the clear sky. A hint of wind blows the branches of a willow and carries two ravens in their flight.
If you’re the sort to count corvids, two is for joy!
Above, you can see the subtle fade of color through the sky, and the detailed silhouette of the ravens. The framed photo below shows the colors best, and demonstrates the larger size and really highlights the way the tree breaks the borders of the sky, adding a surrealist tinge.

Continuing the tradition, this Pathways art to calls for winter, for coolness, for the rise of trees from the depths of snow, for the white of a sky bleached by a distant sun.
Wide and low, this glimpse into the wintry forest is an odd shape that would go perfectly in a bookshelf, or matted into a bigger frame as shown here.
Where do you need the crisp bite of winter in your life?
Above, you can see the cool blue-violet shapes that feel like trees, or vines, or rain down a window. Below, the painting is in its temporary frame, waiting for a new home.

Like soothing waves of water, this blue-violet color contains surprising amounts of detail once you look past the initial impression. There’s a very subtle hint of sparkle here and there, the smallest shapes of water and spray, and of course the more obvious gradations of flow.
The tall, narrow rectangular shape echoes a hallway flowing with water rather than a more natural stream.
Above, you can see the tiny details, flecks of paint and flecks of white like foam and stones in the water. Below, the painting is trapped in its frame, a piece of time forever frozen under glass.
