Four Hours on a Sunday

starting to work through the pile of veggies
and more chopping.
Lots of green tomatoes, red peppers, green peppers, and onions.
Pile is about half chopped
  All chopped with a new, nineteen fifty-ish 'blitz hacker'.
Colander number one - before more tomatoes and before onions - filled two colanders piled high
Cooking and stirring two large pots of relish
4 hours later - the yield
Today was Make Relish Day.

The Motive

The latest and probably the painting that will be exhibited this Spring at the Rockport Art Association.  It is from a night photo that I took of Motif #1, which is often referred to as the motive by native Rockporters.

"Are you willing to sell it?" I was asked today. 
"That's why it is called The Motive, rather than Motif 1."
