Phindy & Phood (uhhh Food)

The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is to use our favorite Phindy image. The challenge at Digital Tuesday is to create with a food theme. I normally do not enter the same image in two challenges - that is just me. But.... this time I can't resist. Mr. Brown is BBQing and we are getting to that time of year. He is colored with Copic markers and the grill is coated with Paper Glaze (Aleene's). The checkered paper was in a BBQ paper pack and the 3 red crystals are Mark Richards (Paper Wishes). I have tried so many times in the past to color this image and have never been happy with my efforts. This time it all came together!

 This is a picture of DH (we've been married for almost 32 years!). Now you know why the above image is special. Mike does not have the paunch of Mr. Brown, but he has the love of BBQing. He has competed in the Lenexa BBQ Battle for many years. Originally he was with 2 friends and then as the kids got older and wanted to cook too, they broke off and started their own team. Approximately 180 teams invade the park in Lenexa KS the last weekend in June each year - just look for the cloud of BBQ smoke. I have no problem being an "official" taste tester. The others do the cooking, I just taste, nap, read, visit with friends, etc. We've had a nice shady spot along the east side of the pond. Looking forward to this year's battle!
