I love catching up with friends over tea and cake, sharing a lovely meal with loved ones or indulging in something delicious, well, just because.
Just the sight or smell of food can conjur up instant emotions and memories. From first dates to funerals, weaning to weddings, comforting ourselves in a massive tub of ice cream or embracing vegetables as we strive for a healthier lifestyle - food is such an important (and vital!) part of our lives.
Food is so much more than mere fuel for our bodies. It is a source of joy and of indulgence, a way of showing that we care and a wonderful way of sharing time and bonding with loved ones.
And I love painting it as much as I love eating it!
Anyway, what's for tea?..
