ARTmonday: Amy Stevens Cake Photos

I just finished putting together a sidebar of affordable art picks for the May issue of HGTV Magazine. It will accompany the feature on our Boston condo, which will focus on our art, which is everywhere. They chose 8 affordable artworks out of 25 choices I provided, so there were a lot of leftovers. I’ll eventually post all 25 picks, but in the meantime here is an expanded look at artist Amy Stevens’ cake photographs.

Stevens cake photo series, called Confections, started in 2005 as a response to her 30th birthday. She says, “It was a celebration of birthdays, color, pattern, and obsessive absurdity.”

Her original idea was to bake 30 birthday cakes for herself and photograph them. She ordered a cake decorating kit online, watched an instructional video, and quickly discovered her cakes were going to be imperfect. She decided to leave them in what she describes as “their exuberantly imperfect states.”

In the course of eight years, the series evolved into more of a humorous, feminist, conversation on life and the struggle for perfection. Amy Stevens is based in Berks County, Pennsylvania, earned a BFA from Arizona State, and an MFA from Temple University.

ARTmonday: Still Life Photographs by Anna Williams

This morning when I was looking for art to share with you, I came across a photo I had put assigned labeled Anna Williams “Seeking.” When I Googled Anna Williams, this Brooklyn-based photographer’s work came up. Not the Anna Williams from UGallery I had been searching for, but another photographer named Anna Williams.

This Anna Williams shoots lush still lifes, often of sensuous food, as well as quiet, rich interiors. She’s assisted Stephen Lewis, Bill Abranowicz and Gentl + Hyers, and has shot campaigns for Michael Kors and Williams Sonoma, as well as editorial for Martha Stewart, Real Living, and Food & Wine.

Her work is beautiful, so, proving detours can be very good, I thought I’d share. Here are 10 works by photographer Anna Williams.

Foodie Friday: 17 Exquisite Desserts

I was perusing my cookbooks and Pinterest this morning for an apple crisp recipe. Oddly, it was elusive. I had meant to bake an apple pie, but the premade crust I bought (you didn’t actually think I was planning on spending the time to do a paté brisée did you?) was frozen, and had needed to defrost overnight. So, apple crisp it is. I don’t actually eat the crust anyway; I’m all about the filling.

Generally I tend to be distracted by anything chocolate, but since it’s Thanksgiving, and since I made a devil’s food birthday cake with marshmallowy frosting from Dorie Greenspan‘s Baking just a few days ago, I was able to stick to the fruity course.

Here are some desserts that caught my eye from my Desserts Pinterest board today. Most of the links click through to the recipes, if you’re so inclined. Maybe you just want to look; fewer calories. Happy Thanksgiving!
