I wish you a happy ending for the old year and best wishes for 2.020.
📏 📐 Hello sisters! The most shocking thing about when I entered the Faculty of Fine Arts was the usual practice of drawing and painting in large formats hanging on the wall, as Susanne does.
“Das Leben ist wie eine Pralinenschachtel. Man weiß nie, was drin ist.“
Sally Field, *1956, amerikanische Schauspieler, Producer, Sprecher, Regisseur
Mit dem legendären Satz aus „Forrest Gump“ (1994) schrieb sich die zweifache Oscar-Preisträgerin Sally Field endgültig in die Filmgeschichte ein.
Diesen so bekannten Film habe ich einen Tag vor der Geburt meines Sohnes im Kino gesehen, danach habe ich mich nie wieder aufraffen können, diese schwere Kost nochmals zu sehen.
Das heutige Zitat jedoch habe ich nie vergessen. Ich finde, das Foto von mir von 2006 bei der Arbeit an den Lebensstufen der Frau begleitet Sally Fields Worte sehr gut. Es ist erstaunlich, was nach 2006 alles in meinem Leben passierte. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich in diesen 13 Jahren mehr erlebte als in den 41 Jahren davor! Was für eine Pralinenschachtel!

💁WELL DEARS! AN EXPRESSIVE PORTRAIT IS ALWAYS SOMETHING MIGHTFUL.
I want to spend more time on my portraits and, in particular, try to draw at least some portraits that include more than just a face. So here is a little more of Kaelin than just her face.
I painted this in my Laloran sketchbook with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished it with Prismacolor coloured pencils.
WELL BEAUTIES! I ADORE JOURNALS AND TONYA IS A GREAT ARTIST.
I had a podcast all recorded and ready to be edited just before Christmas 2018. While I began editing I noticed that the video and audio were out of sync. Thinking this should be an easy fix I didn’t worry until 2 days later and no results and I was set to begin Christmas Vacation. So I didn’t record again.
Not that I won’t be posting videos again, but I want to want to record. Podcasting is fun for me. It is no more than me sharing with you my knitting life and and a bit tangential to that world.
I’ve definitely been in a funk this past winter. That’s very unusual for me. I typically get inspired the most during the cold days of winter. I love the light in winter. My eyes are very light sensitive so the lower sun in the sky helps. It is getting…

Hi folks! Today we visit this work made by a german artist of 19 th century.
Merry Christmas day and thanks for your visits !
🏠 🎄 WELL BEAUTIES, WE CAN LEARN FROM KATE’S WORKS. LET’S BUILD OUR OWN OBJECTS FOR THESE SPECIAL DAYS.
A fusion made in heaven: Tall candlesticks – already an object of desire because of their perfect balance of functionality with beauty – now upgraded to lust level with whimsy, madness and imagination. Apparently these lovelies were originally from Anthropologie, and – apologies – are both unavailable and required deep pockets (I saw them priced at $395 each). But their joy is the love they continue to radiate in inspiration, because when should price stop anyone?
I particularly love this pic, and can only doff my hat to the skillful drilling it must’ve entailed. Muchus Kudos.
Quite a few examples have used glass: I have no idea what kind of glue they used, or how long the bonds would last, but how appealing for a Christmas table…
(All pics Pinterest)
And then there’s this little beauty, a hybrid of many things, including a brutal yet fanciful version of Japanese…

Hi folks! Snow days sometimes have a magical meaning.
Thanks for your visits.
🍁 WELL LOVELIES, I THINK THIS TREE WILL ARRIVE TO YOUR CHRISTMAS HEART. SISTER OLGA IS A TRUE DISCOVERY IN ART. ¡BRAVO, COLEGA!
🎶🐦WELL SUGARS! LET THIS LITTLE BIRD REST ON YOUR SHOULDER.
This drawing is about choosing moments of stillness, and listening.
Detail – LISTEN
There is a space between each thought. Try it. Stop and listen for the next thought. When you try this, you will find a space, a stillness, a few moments of peace. Try for another moment, and then another, and you may realize that you are no longer in your head, but listening within your chest area, and in your chest is your heart. Listen into the space, and in this space if you ask for the truth, it will arrive. It is the only place it can arrive. And this is peace.
Try this when waiting in any line
at traffic lights
or while washing dishes
while looking for a new job
or how to “make ends meet”
when the mind is chewing on a past conversation
when you are trying to fall back…

🌸🌸🌸 WELL SISTERS, TODAY IT’S TIME FOR A FUNNY FANTASY BETWEEN RAVENS AND LINGERIE. OBSERVE THE FRESH AND GREAT SKETCHES MADE IN PINK.
The Lingerie Raven is a fellow lingerie blogger that I really admire and enjoy. Cassie Rae writes thoughtful and informative lingerie reviews with a focus on brands for smaller busts. Her blog is very aesthetically driven, and posts are filled with beautiful and well shot images of the writer in her lingerie collection. However, what I love most about her blog is how clearly Cassie’s love for lingerie shines through her writing! If you don’t already follow her, I encourage you to go check out her blog here!
When Cassie approached me about a commission, I was so excited. I had been admiring her aesthetic and lingerie collection for months, and so I knew it would be a fun project to work on. To start off, Cassie and I talked about what she wanted in the illustration. She knew she wanted blues and pinks, a sultry mood, and of…
