They Draw and Cook & Illustration Friday - PASSION


I'm multi-tasking this week. I've been looking for inspiration to submit to They Draw and Cook and this week when I saw the Illustration Friday theme I knew exactly what to do for both. 

Ayers Rock...which for most people is one of the great tourist destinations of the world (and it is AMAZING!!) is where we go (as I'm sure I've mentioned before) if we need to get out of the desert for the weekend. Its got pools and restaurants, post office, bank, a supermarket(!) ....and.... if we really feel like spoiling ourselves, we go for cocktails at the Sails in Dessert Bar and then go into the restaurant to the all you can eat dessert bar. They have little ramekins with mini-cheese cakes and black forest cake and all sorts. But my favourite is the bush lime panna cotta. We were told once that if we ate all of them that they never replace them with the same dessert but bring out something different. Although we've tried, we've never proven this! We justify all this by telling the waiters we are researching so we can go home and make their desserts better than they can! After all, cooking and eating foods that aren't available in our little tiny food shop in remote Australia is one of our main sources of entertainment. 

I've been visiting my dad for the last month in Sydney and passion fruits are a plenty, so this is the dessert and illustration(!) for the week. 

Check out the recipe on They Draw and Cook.

Me



So it's been foreeeevveeer! Sometimes life and the "real job" takes over and there never seems any time to take a breath and get it all out on paper. But this week I was having a mental day at work where nothing was been achieved anyway. I manage an art centre so it seemed only right I practise what I preach and throw some paint around to get it all out. Also, I had made a deal earlier in the year with the artists. They needed a challenge, so I said if they tried painting a portrait (something they've never done before) I would do it too. They had done theres and I hadn't...probably cause I was secretly more terrified than they were! Painting is not something I really ever do but you know it was very therapeutic and when you're in a rut I'll try anything to get inspired!
