FOOD Palette

Go slay the day, people.

Nutrition, Hydration, Movement and most importantly, Soul Peace…

You get these things, right ?!? And that’s when the magic of the human experience begins.

You are on an invisible battlefield, whether you know it or not. I look around and fear the majority of us have layered down and forgotten how powerful these elements are.

Get up. Even though you’re been knocked down, get up. Then pull someone else up once you have your power back and then GO SLAY THE DAY!

Today I get to show my egg tempera to my teacher, William Clay. It’s what we will call from this day forward my “FOOD Palette.” The term was inspired by Carol Goodden (Caroline McCoy) owner of FOOD 1970 New York, with the help of my new talented friend Todd Jordan, who is creating pigments out of his garden and kitchen so I can experiment with their magic. In his own words, hear my teacher, William Clay describe his experience as a student of world-renowned artist Peter Hurd.

I recommend all my artist friends research the term FOOD NY 1970. The story is well documented and was the inspirational place to hang where the food was the art and most anyone could afford a hot meal, and have amazing creative interaction with the best, most talented artists at the time.


What do you get to do today and HOW can you do it in PEACE?

Mama Jana would love to hear!

On the invisible battlefield

The lost technique of egg tempera

William Clay gives freely his knowledge of egg tempera.

I can’t believe I get to study the lost art of egg tempera with this guy, William Clay.

He was a student of Peter Hurd

Here is a bit about Hurd and Wyeth

All Mr. Hurd wanted in return was for William to do the same: FREELY train this technique to the next generation.

Supplies Mr. William’s gave freely to each student.
This is the original recipe of the gesso you can buy commercially that you paint on Masonite boards.

Peter Hurd recommended this book about egg tempera. It was translated to English.
