Thirty Things You Don't Know About Me

#3 - The only food that I do not like is olives.

I can only think of one food item that I absolutely cannot tolerate. It's olives. I am not sure what it is about them, but the taste is just awful. I also think my phobia is hereditary as none of my boys like olives either. So why do restaurants feel obligated to include olives in a dish when they don't even mention it in the menu? I can't tell you how many times I have ordered a salad or pizza or pasta only to find olives on my plate!

I think I have a pretty developed palette (food, not paint). I am a good cook and I have no problem trying new recipes. I love experimenting in the kitchen. And I do love trying new foods! I enjoy cooking with olive oil (in the bottle or even spray). But I have to draw the line when it comes to olives. Even in a vodka martini. Sorry y'all.

So please, hold the olives.

I have a few spots open in my South Pasadena workshop this month. We are painting large canvases and I would love it if you could join me! Click here for more information. This week I am releasing my 2015 workshop schedule. I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta and Richmond in 2015! Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house!

I am also offering Monday Online Studio painting classes beginning October 2014! Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife!
