Avo to Guac

This post would of come sooner had last week's weather not been so gloomy.  The room I paint in is lit by natural light - that said, it can be a bit of a challenge when painting between the clouds.  But, enough said...the weather is BEAUTIFUL now!!!  As we move into summer I find it fitting to paint an avocado and to include the best guacamole recipe I've tried as of yet - YUM!  

3 x 3 in., oil on canvas
"California Avocado" after Sharon Shock

1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 ripe peeled avocado, mashed

Resist the urge to over mix the guacamole, it should have lots of big chunks.  This recipe is easily doubled or tripled!
