happy weekend

What we call a beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

--T.S. Eliot

Thanks, Sara xo

Blue skies, grey landscapes, cozy surroundings.

live. bake. paint.

Leah Rosenberg is a painter who bakes. Or maybe she's a baker who paints. Either way you slice it, she is an artist & pastry chef, both pursuits interwoven & informing each other in their artistry. Working as the pastry chef for SFMoMA's Blue Bottle coffee bar, her pastries are inspired by pieces in the Museum's permanent collection or a work in a current exhibition. While in graduate school for painting, Rosenberg, while taking a cake decorating class, began noticing the response from fellow students when she brought her cakes to class for critiques. This lead to a question, can paintings be generous?, the resulting ideas surrounding consumption, judgement & creation inspiring her approach to painting.

Her gracious, light-filled home (that kitchen!) & home studio space seem the perfect laboratories for her creative processes, both edible & visual.
