before and after-some projects

a cut out of an oilpainting where some parts are good and others less good

the overpaint of an old onion "basket"

the upholstery of a saarinen tulip stoel look a like with calfskin

again on sourdough

I have to admit
it was not easy
after a long journey in sourdough baking
I know now how it works for me
the last loafs of bread got really good
I mean
with air bubbles bigger then 2 mm
a crust that broke

I have learnt
that the starter really needs to be strong
that I have to feed the sourdough starter every week at least once
if I don't bake a bread, a part of it goes in the trash
that the dough may not be too sticky
that it needs time to double in volume
I do it now mostly through a whole night and bake in the morning
and I have to listen to my belly, the recipes are mostly not correct
and this book is shit-sorry-it's fool of mistakes

a little childhood memory
the man for Santa Claus
for once no sourdough
butter and sugar and yeast
Miezi likes them too!
