The Impressionist style of painting lends itself well to dreamy, romantic images, and Nicole Mari was inspired by this painting to dream up her own Valentine’s menu. To see her picnic menu, read on…
Why does this image inspire you?
I’ve always loved John Singer Sargent and find most of his painting pretty romantic. In this picture, I love the diffused light and soft colors. The two make me wish I could sprawl out barefoot in the middle of a meadow to play chess, drink some wine, enjoy a picnic and spend a hazy, lazy afternoon with a loved one. So I came up with a list of picnic foods….which can be spread out on a blanket in the living room, since the weather isn’t really conducive to meadow picnics right now!!
Good luck Nicole Mari!
