art update

art

I’ve been drawing a lot lately and I started to use A3 papers, experiment with more mediums, techniques and styles. To me art is always a search. It’s an expression of whatever I’m feeling and experiencing at the moment and a search of how to express that. The more I think of this the more I get the feeling that nothing I do is an end result, but an inevitable side effect of my attempts. Sometimes it can look as an end result, but really it is more like an incomplete state of something filled with imperfections. In an interesting way because of this I see beauty in everything that has been created with a good spirit and motivation regardless of technical skills or actual characteristics of the creation.
I am turning 25 next month and I totally did not expect it to make any impact on me, because nothing is really changing in any aspect of my life. I plan to continue the same things I am doing right now, maybe dig a little more into them. But it just got me, I felt this change in my perception and self-image. Nothing changed in my way of thinking, but my focus shifted from self discovery to actualization.
I don’t know how but Lena Dunham is always telling exactly the story I need at the moment. I love how she is showing everything that is wrong with ourselves and our lives but at the same time she is making me so excited about living.

searching for flavours

food

First cooking attempt! Cooking means creation to me just like creating drawings or music. The elements I use are flavours, not colors, shapes, or sounds but the method and the feeling while I create is the same. And I can eat it afterwards.

This was yesterday’s quest. Bacon pancakes with ruccola, a salad, tiramisu and lemonade.

Yes, I am messy and I don’t have a table yet.

Pancakes: regular pancake mix with oat and bacon, put some ruccola on top: I really like the taste of bacon and ruccola together. Oat in the pancake mix, why not? But I could come up with a more interesting recipe for the mix.

Salad: lettuce, fried mushrooms, roasted peanut, purple onion, olive oil, pepper, kefir (similar to joghurt): It is nice, I like strong flavours in salads like mushrooms or peanut. It felt a little bit unbalanced somehow like something is missing.

Tiramisu: regular tiramisu, but with minced walnut: So yummy, tiramisu is just so tasty, and I like the walnut combined with it. I could’ve added more liquid (coffee), and less cocoa powder.

Lemonade: nothing special, just a regular homemade lemonade.
