IF ... Savour

©2010 Mardi Speth All Rights Reserved

It's so much more than a specified taste or seasoning. Smell certainly enhances epicurean pleasure, but savouring is far superior to any lip smacking activity. At it's best, one takes complete delight in the participatory dance, and the brain, having undergone an emotional reaction, locks the experience into it's deep, dark recesses only to have it burst forth, full flavor, when the ambrosia tickles the taste buds once again.

IF ... Sneaky

Short of an original idea, I'm playing the cuteness card in this
stealth escapade. There's no mark of treachery or deceit, just a hungry mouse. Shifting perspectives, this composition had my focus on ellipse progressions and shading. Still easier in theory
than with a paint brush.

IF ... Burning

Oh, how I thirst for you, my little jalapeno.
Or as Elmer Fudd would sing, 
"Baby, I'm on fie-wah."
