A romantic tiger?

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
I spent Valentine’s day evening in the company of 20 men. Stop looking at me like that. I was one of 6 women at the Clowne Enterprise Business Forum evening, and went to listen to the four guest speakers. First was craft baker Clive Wormall, who has over 40 years experience. He runs courses on creative baking, and makes decorative bread baskets and wheat sheaves to commission. Clive told us about world records he’d broken, such as helping create the world’s biggest trifle, on the Forest Recreation Ground at Nottingham. Catering students from Clarendon College helped, “…. and we used a cement mixer and a swimming pool, and people came along with their own dishes to try a sample. And that record still stands”.

He showed us a cuddly “Tigger” toy, and asked us what this reminded us of. Yes - it was “Tiger bread”, which he’d invented (amongst other bakery products for supermarkets). Wikipedia defines it as a bread made with sesame oil, with a rice paste crust on the top, which creates a distinctive “tiger” markings pattern as it cooks, and a crusty top. Here’s the link to Clive’s site: http://bakerycraftconsultants.co.uk/index.html#.
This week, I have gone back to my snow trees oil painting, and made the foreground snow whiter, adding more snow among the branches, and some blue shadows. It is reaching the stage where I am playing about with it, to see what looks best. I will soon be adding some small animals to the foreground. At art group, Gill had begun a new painting of a glittery black mask, on a silky pink background, while Kevin continued with his moody oil seascape of Whitby – he has added the Abbey to the cliff tops and was putting the beach in. Everyone else was continuing their existing paintings. I might do a triple canvas abstract next. I have never done a triple one before, and don’t often do abstracts, but I like to push the boundaries of what I can do. It’s time for a change from trees.
