"Marie's Pantry" by Marcia Milner-Brage

Marie's Pantry

A watercolor sketch Marcia Milner-Brage titled "Marie's Pantry". Separately, Marcia's also captured Marie’s harvest before the canning. She shared some comments about Marie and the pantry pictured above:

"Growing what one cans is a whole different level of dedication to sustaining one's family. Marie grows much of what she puts up in their in-town backyard garden, here in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She also is an ace urban forager. Much of her apple sauce and spiced apples were made from apples scavenged from trees that had dropped their crop on the ground in public places, like boulevards."

About herself and her art, Marcia says:
"As for me, I am a visual artist who draws and paints from the world before me–I paint on sight. Whether it be in my own home or hometown or of places I travel to. I do not use photographs. I also am a writer. And very much enjoy combining the painted or drawn image with word images."
