Happy New Year - Eat Up Some Hoppin' John

Happy New Year, everyone!  Actually, I'm posting this on New Year's more drawing to finish up a big art year.

I love eating the dish, Hoppin' John, even if it wasn't good luck.  What am I talking about?  Are you familiar with the Southern saying about eating it on New Year's Day?  Well, here it is:

Eat poor that day, eat rich the rest of the year.  Rice for riches and peas for peace.

Below is my tongue-in-cheek version of it. (-;  Here's to a wonderful 2015!

12" x 16"

Here's some more Black Eyed Peas -two of my favorites from them!

"Let's Get It Started"

"Where Is The Love"


  1. Good tunes! You should send this recipe to They draw and cook. :) Have a great one :)

  2. Hi Sheila and thank you very much for the suggestion. You know, I went ahead and did just that, along with 2 others. The only problem is my dimensions are wrong in all cases. I don't know what my problem is...I have a couple of their cookbooks and have known about their website for several years, but have never submitted. Considering how much I love drawing AND food (ha!), I don't know what I'm thinking. Actually, what I NOW am thinking (or hearing) is Gwen Stefani singing, "What you waiting, what you waiting, what you waiting foooooorrrrr." Geez, I seriously can't help associating a song with my every thought! Too bad there's not a "They Draw and Sing" website. Hmm. That's an idea...
