Echoes of Fragrant Voices by Jo Howe


When I first saw this artwork, I immediately had one thought and one thought only. Pasta. It’s probably because it’s my favorite food. And because I eat it several times a week. But seriously I can’t get it out of my mind when I see this piece.

My pasta routine usually includes sautéing farmer’s market veggies in garlic and olive oil, adding a little cream, tossing in some capellini, and topping with a heap of shaved parmesan. It’s simple, quick, and always delicious. But this piece got me thinking of other kinds of pasta I’m craving to make this summer. Corn in pasta? Yes please!

    What a great translation of the piece! The lines really are suggestive of pasta :) I think I just drooled on my keyboard…

    I don’t think I ever commented on your art to inspiration post this month. It’s so great! I love your interpretation of the piece! So unique (and really appetite inducing!).
