Corn’s looking good early this year. Steve and I think of corn as a natural body sweeper, that happens to also taste good!
5 May 1996 was the day I woke in the early morning and told Steve I was going to the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL) to pick up Rose. I already named her sight unseen. She died on 3 March 2011. Except for the COW GOING TO SLAUGHTER painting, Rose was present while I painted all the others – both collections: “Yellow Duck Walks On Water” and “SNOW”.
In addition to their real names I gave them each an Earth name after each one died: Rainbow (Howdy Duty Davies-Tight) , Sunshine (Casual Rascal Davies-Tight), Rosebud (Ginger Pele Davies-Tight), Thunder (Samuel Joseph Davies-Tight aka Joey-the-fork-butterscotch), Wind (Daisy Mae Davies-Tight), Star (Midnight Rose Davies-Tight).
My publishing company, that I used to publish my own works was called Rainbow Sunshine and Rosebud.
After Rose passed I painted my last painting (2 in 1) thinking I was painting a swan. As it turned out it was Donkey Passing and Sea Animals. The same thing happened as happened with the Cow Going To Slaughter painting. I thought I was painting a huge perfectly formed Pink Rose in the sky I had seen over an Angus Cattle ranch, while taking a Sunday drive in the country in the Pacific Northwest. As it turned out it was a cow in the sky. I didn’t even see it till it was framed. I subsequently traveled all the way to Mexico trying to find the meaning of that Pink Rose. I ended up in Puerto Vallarta, walked in a church that was performing a wedding, walked around to all the statues, then looked up toward the choir and saw Mother Mary with a basket in her arm that had a loaf of bread in it – a real loaf. And here I am – The Animal-Free Chef. Truth be told, my first thought when I saw the statue was ‘her head slants just like mine’.
The alternate name of this dish is Ginger Corn And Tomato. Howdy, Rascal, and Pele used to eat corn right off the cob as we held it for them. They were so polite.
So today, on Rose’s Day, Steve decided to cook, making pepper, onion, celery saute, then I finished up with tomatoes, corn and seasoning, so it was a joint effort.
‘Regina Coeli = Queen of Heaven’, says Steve
