Rothko-Inspired Evening

Mike Watson, gift to his wife

What an amazing evening. This was the unveiling of my husband, Mike Watson's paintings. He just completed eight new paintings that were inspired from Mark Rothko and we invited friends and family to celebrate his accomplishment. Here is a list of the paintings that were at the show:

Planning the food and the actual night was my job! I have been absent at writing about all of my food journeys as of late, but have made a commitment to continue to post my goings on. As many opportunities are appearing and I want to keep you updated as to what I am up to. I have definitely been keeping very busy.

My friend Zach O'Neil from came early to help me get everything ready for the evening. I knew I could count on him to plate the hors d'oeuvres and make the beautiful. I also go to show him how to roll sushi rolls--what a pro in minutes! 

The event started at 6:30 pm, so I decided to do heavy hor deroures so that people could have enough to eat as a meal. 

The menu:

hors d'oeuvres

Stuffed Grape Leaves


Veggie Sushi Rolls

Olive & Fig Tapenade

Stuffed Mushrooms

Artisanal Cheese Plate

Charcuterie Plate


The winner of the painting was Nicole Flisher! She had on just the right outfit to go with the painting.
