WHO IS SENDING ME ALL THESE DELIGHTFUL QUESTIONS, WHO WHO WHO I AM SO HAPPY
oh, god, this is too much. OKAY. well if people are into cheesecake-y things and fruity flavours, then this cream cheese & cake berries cake would be perrrrrfect. or this blueberry & yoghurt cake with lemon vanilla glaze is grand for people looking for something lighter and sweeter. anything with chocolate and raspberries is ALWAYS a good idea, so these chocolate & raspberry brownies served slightly warm with double cream would be like, probably the best xmas christmas dessert ever???
basically i 100% LOVE that you called me the baking queen, might put it on my cv, but the REAL baking queens are probably sally and averie, whose blogs are smorgasboards of amazing bakery based inspiration. have a lovely christmas! <3
well this question is an absolute delight! i made a happy little noise when i saw it, thanks anon.
my favourite artist, without even a shadow of a doubt, is miro. i’m not sure i could ever pick a favourite piece of his because i love them all SO much, but i did cry when i saw Self Portrait (1937/8-1960) in the fundacio in barcelona so that’s probably up there. also Still Life with Old Shoe, because it’s just as powerful and sad and beautiful and important as guernica but gets none of the credit.
that said, Geurnica is obviously up there as well because i’m a cliche. and because there’s no one like picasso. in general i do like the spanish - velazquez, goya, dali, etc. there’s something about spain, i don’t know.
in general i like the inter-war period - i like surrealism and cubism and dada and everything like that, that’s very much where my main interest lies. but looking a little bit earlier than that it has to be turner, really. though it’d obviously be stupid to ignore da vinci, cause, you know. i’ve got eyes.
in terms of contemporary artists i’ve always been a big banksy fan, though right now i’m also really, really like hyuro right now. and i think what carlos amorales does is so beautiful.
i don’t know - i really do like lots of different things, for lots of different reasons. the art that i’d hang on my wall, for instance, is not necessarily the art i’d like to learn about. but yeah, i guess that’s most of it. thank you for asking! :)
