Sushi date #474

Daily painting #474 5"x7" oil on primed canvas panel

My daughter was at a friend's house yesterday so after taking Ross for a 'school boy' haircut, I treated him to a sushi lunch date with Mom! I love it that at almost 14 it is still cool to have a lunch date with Mom....or maybe it is just that he LOVES sushi! My daughter doesn't share our mutual love of sushi so it was the perfect time to indulge! I love having one-on-one time with each of my children and Ross hasn't exactly had the most exciting end to his holidays after his eye procedure.
I had to take a photo of the sushi and I painted it when I got home. I always think sushi looks so pretty! I do not often paint my daily paintings from photos....I usually have the object in front of me so today was a bit of a challenge....the light in the restaurant was bright and the photo was taken on my iPhone. Not ideal but I had fun....the most important part of painting! It didn't go unnoticed by the 14 year old that it is NOT COOL for your mom to be rearranging and photographing her sushi, and the likes of "Mom, you're wacky" or something similar was muttered! A life lesson ....life is boring without a little bit of wacky! To this he laughed and said, "I couldn't agree more!" Thank goodness he agreed....this mom just saved face and hopefully the rights to another sushi date with her teenager sometime soon!
