I love to create. Create art, music, installations, food, really I just get a big buzz out of putting little creations together. One time when I was learning about weaving with natural fibres, I got so in a buzz about it that I used all the old palm fronds from my garden (that really should have been composted or taken to the dump) and wove them into a basket surrounding some plants. Seriously, I just a bit crazy when I start something and then can’t stop.
Interestingly, yesterday when I went to my beautiful art space to start ‘The Painting Workbook’.. ‘how to get started and stay inspired’ .. by Alena Hennessy … I started in on an exercise using just 2 colours and just played really quickly.
Of course it wasn’t as if this was some really amazing art work, however, I just did circles of colour with the red, black verging into a purple thing. Then guess what happened?
Yep, along comes another idea. I found this tart I just had to make. This just seems how it goes, start with one thing then off I go on another tangent, although it seemed so related and when I put them together, (the art project and the food project) they seemed .. made for each other.
So here it is, my lovely friend Amarilda came for lunch, and we laughed lots, told our funny little life stories, did lots of tecky things (actually tried to, again ridiculous laughter) and enjoyed this fabulous tart, I changed the recipie a bit, by using yoghurt and mustard and also added some brie in the base and I put spring onions as the last circle. It was fun I felt like I was creating and eating circle art all day.
If you want to have a try, and I tell you it is really simple, really delicious, really healthy and of course really beautiful all very important in my books, check out this link
