This one is called, " Prayer for the Ripe, But Not Too Ripe Avocado" on etsy now. One of my most favorite foods is a perfectly ripe avocado. Even when you think you have a good one, it could have strings. That is the worst. I guess they are little roots? I don't know. I should have looked it up. I try to plan out my avocados so that I have one for lunch everyday. This can be difficult. That is where the prayer comes in.

I love it!! With Tamale hoping for the best so you won't be crabby after lunch--but you probably were today since school dismissed early!! My lunch avocado was a little brown today, boo! I think they are truly one of my favorite foods~

I love this - and she definitely looks pensive as she awaits the sampling of that avocado!

The painting is perfection!

Don't you just loathe those strings! A perfect avocado was ate by me today with my lunch. Just sayin...

I love that painting. I'll probably think of it whenever I eat one. Dad and I ate one the other day and half of it was brown mush, but then what can you expect for 35 cents from Aldi's. Maybe I should say a prayer before I buy them.

The only time I eat avacado is in guacamole ;)
I don't think i've ever eaten one just on it's own, I might have to add it to the shopping list this week :)

Love the painting, her expression is fabulous!!
