|~ TAHITIAN ROSE ~|
As my Grandma and Grandpa were links to the Jewish culture, I treasure these porcelain roses as keepsakes of infinitesimal value and feel the power and endurance of love each time I set my table.
The pastel drawing above ~ Tahitian Rose ~ was created as the figurehead of my new Magical Cookbook and inspired by these porcelain roses together with my garden rose, a Tahitian Rose of majestic loveliness, the scent of which intoxicates and inspires.
" Your heart is like a magical kitchen. If you open your heart, you already have all the love you need" Don Miguel Ruiz: The Mastery Of Love.
Within the synchronicity of reading Don Miguel Ruiz's enlightening book and discovering the chapter "The Magical Kitchen" I am truly blessed with the inspirational messages and wise counsel therein.
Food nourishes the body and soul. Faith nourishes the spirit. I am an artist combining two of her great loves in my Magical Cookbook. One of painting, one of cooking. Faith and delicious food.
At the present moment, my new pastel ~Azulene~ with Swarovski crystals, is still being created and will highlight a recipe incorporating Chamomile and the benefits of a Magical Formulae of Azure Blue: an essential oil formed by the German method of distilling the charmingly beautiful Chamomile flower.
