I picked up the September issue of Woman's Day magazine to see what their dinner meal calendar had for salmon entrees, and there was only one for the whole month, a recipe for salmon burgers.
Fair enough, canned salmon is ALMOST affordable, but I'm still not going to cook salmon this week. What I'm going to do with that and a slew of other food images from the magazine is to make a collage for my brother and his wife, a chef, as a Christmas prezzie. But not today.
Then, I Googled "salmon" to see what I might gather there. There were the fishies, but there was also a section on the color "salmon," that peachy-pink color. I clicked on that section and I came across photos of roses. My forever favorites are named, "Sonia," a true all-over salmon colored rose, but I could not find very good images of those, so I looked for flowers that resembled Sonias. I had two ideas in mind from there--either pick up paint chips at Home Depot to collage (which did not happen, but another idea I need to revisit) or tangle a line drawing of a rose, which I've seen elsewhere to amazing effect.
Thanks for visiting this bizarre travel through salmon and make sure to see all the beautiful work that the other participants are doing at EIM. I am grateful for the opportunity to challenge the grey matter.
Have a brilliant, salmon-colored day!
