🪕🎶🐴 HELLO LOVELIES! TODAY THIS PLAUSIBLE WORK, CARRIES US TO A MUSICALE CITY. BEAUTIFUL BUILDING.
After the brief foray into the linocuts and watercolors, I decided to return to the architecturals but on a smaller scale. The large ones I did for the print company were rather tiring and I needed the break. The next few pictures will be in the 8×10 range instead of 12×16. I think I do work better on a smaller scale somehow. I know I prefer it so maybe that is the difference.
I drew up and painted this one Monday and Tuesday. On the actual building they had bricked in the arched triple set windows on the second and third floors, so I put them back in. I can’t imagine why that was done because the sets I copied from the left side remained, but I have rectified the error, adding back all of the character of this older building. I debated watercolor versus pastels and decided…

🔴🟥❤️ SO TRUE, BEAUTIES. WE ALSO CAN ENJOY THE CALM OF HOME. THIS BLOGGER DEPICTED IT, AS A “CHEERFUL, BRIGHT SCENE”.
Today, I want to share one of my favorite paintings by one of my favorite artists!
Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954), the French Expressionist painter, favored bold palettes and cheerful scenes. He painted “The Dessert: Harmony in Red” in 1908.
Often the use of red in painting is designed to give the viewer a feeling of horror, seediness, or a sinister feeling, particularly when it’s the predominant color. Matisse uses red quite a bit in his art, but there’s no negative feeling here. Instead, it’s a cheerful, bright scene and rather than upset the viewer or make him anxious, the red simply serves to lock in the viewer’s attention.
🏘️ WELL SISTERS, SOME BUILDINGS ALSO CAN BE A PLACE FOR HAPPINESS MOMENTS.
I am in the middle of a two-week trip with my sisters to the beautiful Mexican city of Oaxaca. Talking might be our main activity, which we enjoy very much. I also like the long conversations because it gives me a chance to sketch my sisters. This piece is from last night when we lingered at our table at our ABnB long after we finished supper.
❤️🤍❤️ HI SISTERS! AS SHARI TOLD, THIS IS IS A VIEW OF A BEAUTIFUL OLD BUILDING IN MONTREAL LIT BY MORNING SUN. A MAGNIFICENT SKETCH.
I was out early today and found some time for a few sketchbook scribbles before and after a haircut. The first scribble was in Old Montreal, where I found a good parking spot facing the Allan Building and the John Young monument. It’s been a long, cold winter in Montreal with not much time for sketching from my car, but it felt good today to get downtown early and set myself a limit of 30 minutes to sketch whatever I could find. Luckily it was a view of a beautiful old building lit by morning sun.
On my way home, feeling lighter after the haircut, I stopped at another favourite spot: rue Notre-Dame in old Lachine. I love that narrow section of street for the criss-crossing of wires and the rhythm of the utility poles. By the time I got home it wasn’t even 11 am but I had done…

🐦 HELLO DARLINGS. THESE DAYS, THIS BLOG IS VISITING BUILDINGS AND HOUSES AND DOESN’T WANT TO FORGET TO VISIT A BIRDHOUSE OF BEAUTIFUL GARDEN.
👁️🗨️ SO TRUE, BEAUTIES. SOME BUILDINGS CAN HOUSE PIECES OF MAXIMUM CREATIVITY.
The name of the exhibition Breathing Colour at the Design Museum in London comes from light’s ability to make colours come to life. It has been put together by a famous Dutch textile designer Hella Jongerius. Going through the exhibition is a visual learning experience about the use of colour in industrial design.

🧱 🌸🚪HELLO DARLINGS! IF YOU WANT YOU CAN TURN YOUR HOUSE INTO A MINI ART GALLERY.
Danial showed me the work of Paula Greif today, and it really struck a chord. She makes simple and playful objects that reference everyday, functional items – most can even be used as such (although the price tag might prevent most people putting them into every day rotation!). Having worked in graphic design and the music industry she shifted focus after reading in the book Calder at Home about how Calder “extended his creativity to every corner of his existence” (quote from here); it inspired her to begin making thoughtful objects for her home. These included hand-hooked rugs and, after an evening course, ceramics.
I really like that her pieces encourage people to enjoy the everyday, and the routines and activities that make it up. They are functional but not stolidly so – there’s a lightness and playfulness about them that is very appealing. It relates in…
