In the mood for love

These delicious red images put me in the mood for the season of love.

Food for thought and the sense of taste:

Not that I need any incentive, but don't you just adore this pop of red word art in a mainly white kitchen.  Although, I think if these were followed by the letters  C  A  K  E the saying would be perfect ~ since we all know a meal is just not complete until dessert has been served!  This typography can be created by painting wooden letters, which are widely available, with a couple of coats of red acrylic paint and a top coating of varnish.  Or can be ordered ready made like those shown above through this web site here.

The figurative paintings of Russian born artist Andre Kohn are  rich with color and an intense palette knife texture.  Andre was raised by an artistically gifted family near the Caspian Sea in southern Russia where his childhood and art education corresponded with an eruption of cultural progress in all the arts, including ballet, literature, music and painting.  Andre was principally influenced by such artists as, Nicolai Fechin, Ilya Repin, Valentin Serov, and the classics: Edgar Degas , John Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla.  The precise convergence of these dynamic influences have produced one of the most collected figurative painters on the American art scene today.

Even mac and cheese would look like a five star meal if served on this gorgeous dinnerware by PiP studio's whose motto just happens to be ~ "Happy products for Happy people"  In her warm and intimate style PiP often uses a mix and match concept with layered patterns and a sharp eye for tiny details and special finishing touches combined with a subtle colour pallet.  Keep your eyes open for PiP products as she is beginning to make a name for herself in Australia and is taking her first careful steps in America too.  I for one cannot wait to see more!

A sweet Valentine treat for the littles and bigs  ~ cake pops made with an oreo truffle recipe and a cupcake mold.  Only one word needed here:  Delicious.

If in need of an elegant and tasty way to show your love, nothing beats Dipped strawberries.  Box your berries up and present them as a gift or serve them on a plate surrounded by pink, white and red roses!

Je t'aime, mon amour.
