My Yule Tree

I’ve finished decorating my first big Christmas Tree and used the ornaments… I meant to sell, oops! I realise that I can’t make duplicates of things, everything has to be one of a kind and that’s not very commercial. On top of that, let’s face it, the chance to sell anything remotely artistic these days is doomed to failure unless you’re the very, very persistent kind and I’m not. I have other preoccupations and fun in art is my one and only aim. Very, very few people pay for art. I also can’t compete with the Chinese market. So that’s my long story just to say I’m giving up entirely. My art is now free from any worry and it is just so… as it should be!

So I hope you too have an area in your life where you can say “fuck it” and just do things for yourself. Money and recognition cannot compensate for the pleasure you would sacrifice to get them.

Here is a Yule Tree to dream by. It contains a whole magical world.img_3711 img_3728 img_3740 img_3742

 

A Tuxedo Truffle Torte

The base is like a giant baked truffle topped with a layer of rum and white chocolate mousse. And the whole thing is coated with white and dark chocolate ganache. And it’s made by my beloved super cook:

I could wrap my Christmas tree in it but instead I’ll make a pullover or a pointy hat. The colors, the textures, everything is gorgeous. It’s also quite thick and warm and yet supple.

There are three tealights inside, it’s my biggest lantern so far. It looks like it has glitter but it’s the flames shining through tiny holes.

That’s one Hygge tree!
