Hi! I'm Aubrey.
I am an artist based in LA (but from the good 'ol Midwest). This blog is a record of my life as a painter/artist. It is here to help me keep my place and motivation, ground me to learning and be a connection to other artists.

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am in the middle of completing a unique painting assignment. Awhile back I completed this piece as a commission to be given as a gift to a young lady's grandmother:
The grandmother contacted me a short time after wanting to purchase two more paintings of the same imagery for her sisters. She said that she knew each painting would be unique/not necessarily look exactly like the one that she received but that she wanted her sisters to have original paintings as well. I think that's fantastic. It is going to be an interesting experiment, though -completing the same painting 3x...will need some kind of chocolatey fuel...

Here is the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe EVER! (simple, perfect, delicious):
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup Hershey's special dark chocolate chips
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes (or until very lightly golden brown on top)

Thanks for sharing the recipe! I think it can be very enlightening and fun to paint the same thing more than once.
