How to THINK like an Artist - 
All Art is Conceptual !*

Now, go practice what you have learned for 10,000 hours!

*Even realistic art and photography are conceptual. A famous painting by René Magritte shows a pipe with the French words under, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" or translated into English, "This is not a pipe." 
The meaning of this artwork is - a 2-D (two dimensional) image, which your mind recognizes as a pipe, is not an actual pipeProving that images are conceptual, just like all art is pure concept and a product of the mind.

Eggs in Butter & Cream!

- Lightly butter some small ramekins. 
- Warm your cream in the microwave. 
Spoon two tablespoons of cream into the ramekin and break one egg into the cream. 
- All but the yolk should be covered with cream. 
- Place a small piece of butter near each yolk. 
- DO NOT season yet!
- Prepare a water bath and bring to a boil. 
- Place the ramekins into the high sided pan with the water coming up to no more than 3/4 of the side of the ramekins.
- Cover the pan (and the ramekins if they have lids). 
- Let cook and check on the eggs after 5 minutes. Yolks should start to look barely cooked.
- Remove ramekins and season with salt and pepper. 

Serve each ramekin on a plate with potatoes and sausage on the side. Eat the eggs with a spoon. Enjoy your breakfast with a nice cup of dark coffee.

This is the fanciest egg dish you may ever ever eat = "Once-in-a-lifetime Eggs!" 

Have a Happy & Prosperous New Year, 2013!
