I love to cook and have always loved Julia Child. I was very sad when she died, as she was one of those people like Mr. Rogers - when you grow up in the U.S., they were two of those cultural figures who were always just "there" and a part of your life. I was probably one of the few grade school kids who tuned in regularly to watch her show. My brothers would tease me because it used to be my job to clean the kitchen after meals and I would take the leftovers and act out my own little cooking "show" when I thought no one was around or listening. I found this charming painting
by Philadelphia-based artist El Lohse.
Gotta love Julia and the "butta" - her favorite ingredient (we share that in common!)
El creates fascinating works based on cultural icons. You will love checking out her fun shop here!
