I have been meaning to post this painting which I painted at Casa Romantica, a beautiful old Spanish building which is now used for weddings and meetings. This was painted on Thursday of the San Clemente paint out, in late June.

This particular part of the garden is called The Butterfly Garden. Host plants like buddleia, milkweed, cosmos and many others are planted to attract the insects. A trellis is placed on the wall to the right where the caterpillars attach themselves and create their chrysalises (chrysales?) If you look at these precious ornaments very closely you can see the monarch wings in various states of metamorphosis. Among the flowers, I have suggested a number of butterflies in the garden. Can you find them all?

In the distance is the San Clemente pier, a local landmark. By the time I finished this, in the afternoon, the June gloom morning fog had burned off.

    Anthony Tomassi has been presiding over Nina’s Cucina for three years, building a loyal clientele in Spring Hill on the strength of his three course dinner for two people for $24. That’s two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts for $24 total. Add to that nine house wines with deals like two glasses for $6, and you’re keeping some green in your pocket. The little (only 14 tables) dinner only spot has become known for its brick oven, thin crust pizzas (with carefully sourced ingredients like mushrooms from Pennsylvania’s Kennett Square), but classic Italian dishes like chicken Marsala or spaghetti carbonara have big fans. In addition to housemade tiramisu and chocolate mousse, for V Day Tomassi is planning pink cannoli.
