Mint Chocolate Ice Cream …and a Summer Challenge…
“Without ice cream life and fame are meaningless”
I love ice cream, I love color, I love nature, and leaves and butterflies are in my art everywhere, no matter if it is ceramic, painting, collage or surface patterns…
In the Second week of the Summer of Color we are challenged to make art in any form using the colors of a specific ice cream flavor. This week is Chocolate Mint. I like the flavor but I have a long list of favorites, it depends where I buy it. We have a lovely place in my hometown, Caguas, in Puerto Rico that sells what they call “artisan ice creams”. Let me tell you, there are no other like theirs. They make ice cream with tropical fruit flavors and also they use some vegetables. The corn flavor is exquisite but I am in love with “choco avellana”. It is a mix of chocolate and hazelnut. I also love the mix of guava flavor and cream cheese. They are all delicious. It is a place to visit The name is Jendy’s. The best ice creams by far….and they also have Mint Chocolate and this week in honor of the Summer of Color I will try that one…mixed with “choco-avellana” for sure.
Using a hand drawn icon of a leaf and a butterfly I created a pattern using the mint chocolate as a color inspiration! I love to mix icons and make patterns and now that I am a graduate from the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design with Rachel Taylor and Beth Nichols I am committed to practice and practice…..So proud to show you this graduate button:
For this week’s surface pattern the hand drawn icons I used are these:
And the pattern I created is here:

Have a great week,
