Spoonflower.com has partnered with the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University challenging participants to use a limited color palette to create a Matisse inspired fabric pattern. This is a personally exciting challenge because Matisse has been one of my long time favorite artists. It has been fun to discover the Nasher Museum. The exhibit pages provide fascinating reading about the Cone sisters, their travels, and life. Above are two preliminary sketches testing out the colors and looking for my own Matisse like shapes.

But now the question is "What to do with all the zucchini?". So far we have grilled, sauteed and included in lasagna. Now it is time to share or bake.
In my last three garden summers the zucchinis got sick and died. This year they thrived. I forgot how prolific they can be and am caught with out a plan.
