Art. Hide. 1.23.18

The request seemed simple enough. It was to look as if a painting were hung against the wall. The painting was of no consequence, and designed so that the eye would slide off of it. It was to occupy space and not provoke.

The painting would mask the fact that while the wall appeared to be flat, it wasn’t. It had a gentle outward bow.

It was to appear the wall was smooth and unbroken. It wasn’t.

The gentle bow and nondescript painting combined to mask a cunningly hidden portal; a means for escape if the person was adept at falling backwards at an angle while being pursued.

That person would look as if they dissapeared, but in reality only slid behind the curve into a space between the wall and into a thin, parallel passage.

This feature was to be build into a well known hallway in a single night, then removed within a week. No small feat for a crew, but this task was to be done by one skilled workman who could be counted on for their discretion. This requirement narrowed the field considerably, and so the call went discretely forth, was discretely answered, the portal was installed and removed without incident or note…

…except for the fact of who went missing during it’s existence.

…and that a very small number of people knew of the “hide.”

That was the rather bland name for the proposal, and the memo line on the check with a shocking number of zeros on it that the builder was terrified of cashing.

(…an idea for a short story that woke me at 2:30 am.)

Sex. Art. The Weekend Draw. Ash & Eric P. 12-2 & 12-3

Drew three times this weekend. One session at the local bar – mainly fantasies inspired by porn and the patrons, the second with a friend followed a few drinks at my local hangout, and the third was a local model I’ve drawn before, but encouraged to allow himself to think erotically if he felt inclined.

Cuisine. Chicken Leek soup in the Instant Pot. 11-30

3 hotel cut (leg and thigh, skin on) chicken legs – bones in, they add flavor to your soup. 2 carrots, diced to 1/4 inch 1 stalk of celery, diced to 1/4 inch 2 shallots, diced to 1/4 inch 2 leeks, cleaned, sliced into 1/4 inch slices, and separated into rings 4 tbsp of salted butter 4 tbsp double smoked rendered bacon fat (cook a couple pounds of double smoked Kentucky bacon in the oven on a cookie cooling rack placed over a half sheet pan. Eat the bacon. Reserve the fat, strained, in a mason jar in your fridge. That stuff is gold. Save it) 1/2 teaspoon of salt 2 tablespoons concentrated chicken stock 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender 1 teaspoon Bouquet Garni 4 cloves of garlic, smashed and finely chopped 6 Oz Charm City Honey Mead 1 teaspoon herbes Parisienne Set the Instant Pot to Sautee. Melt your butter and add your seasonings, then wilt your leeks, and then the remaining veggies until soft. Take them out of the pot and set aside. Add the bacon fat into the pot without clearing out the brown at the bottom. That is fond. That’s your flavor. You need that for your soup to have depth. Brown all of your chicken, add your veggies back into the pot with 7 cups of water and your concentrated stock, and the 6 oz of Mead. Lock down your lid, and pressure cooker on high for 13 minutes. Release the pressure carefully, take the chicken bones out, and you’re done. It took longer to prep the vegetables than it did to pressure cook the soup. …and it was better soup than the stuff that usually takes hours on the stove.
