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…

🌿💚 WELL LOVELIES, “GREEN” ABSTRACTION IS SIMPLY WONDERFUL
Well, hello everyone! It has been some time since my last post. This late summer and autumn, I took time off from sewing and patchwork, but enjoyed reading instead. I have found some great books and couldn’t stop reading them. I was a very regular customer in the wonderful bookstores in the city center of Prague. Not only did I get books in my native language Czech but also in German and English.
Autumn has arrived and let the outdoor temperatures drop. And I have finally finished piecing the rest of the Summer Sampler 2019 blocks. I could check my skills in different piecing techniques. Accurate cutting and piecing. Improvisational piecing, sewing curves, foundation paper piecing, hexagons, flying geese, half rectangle blocks.
So, here the last batch of photos before I start piecing the quilt top. Summer Sampler 2019 blocks #14 – #21 :

WELL DEARS! TODAY WE’VE GOT A POEM WITH ITS COLOURS. ENJOY!
An art brush drips inside of me
Throbbing, kicking wildly
Lettering a tragicomedy-
Brazen strokes vibrant of
ecstasy, sorrow and madness
bleeding in –
Red Green Blue
against the receptive canvas
I live loudly
My single redeeming attribute
I hold nothing back-
When you ask to witness
the spells of a fiery sketch
Don’t be bewildered
if I confess –
All my paintings
inside of me

🎨💜✊WELL SISTERS! OUR POWER MUST KEEP GROWING.
If you’re not familiar with Women in Art, it’s a series here on The Art Stories that highlights the valuable contribution of women in art. Gender biases have been an ongoing obstacle for women trying to make it in the art world for centuries. Their works were not attributed to them; more often than not, they remained anonymous, especially those produced during the Renaissance. Women were not accepted in Art Schools which were are until now a male-dominated space. The first woman to ever get accepted in the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, two groups of artists in France, was Suzanne Valadon in 1894. The female presence has been steadily growing from the 19th century onwards but statistics show that we have a long way to go. To this day, out of 10,000 artists featured in permanent exhibitions in the US museums, 87% are male and 85% are white. The 8th…
