its a long road and a lot of pickles...

Back at the end of August, thanks to the amazing Lunenburg farmers market, I experienced for the first time in my adult life the joy of pickling. It was one heck of a vinegary love-fest and the loving hasn't stopped since.

It's now four months later and I still haven't been able to kick the pickle brain so I finally decided to find an outlet for my gherkin craze. I started off with a graphite drawing of my Lunenburg dills and then just got carried away from there experimenting with some open screened pickles and finally a three colour pickle print.

My final print looks something like this... I'm hoping the world is ready for some fantabulous dill-pickle doorstops.

  1. I am totally ready for pickle doorstoppers. Especially since I have friends who I call the "Gerkins" (not spelled the same as a gherkin, but they are now resigned to being called a pickle) and I'm pretty sure they need one of these as a gift from me.
