Sour and sweet is the taste of life
Some street art from Italy - just impressions i caught, while walking the little streets of the ancient town called Albenga, situated at the Ligurian coast. The combination of zesty yellow, sweet pink and mellow grey is something i want to use in one of the next paintings. Yellow and pink is my happy combination, and the grey and creamy white ads a touch of softness to the mix.
It's grey outside here and soft rain is falling. Am preparing for a weekend visit by two close friends of mine, and look forward to an exciting film-premiere on sunday, featuring the work of some people very dear to me -more about it in the next post!
Looking at those lemons, i'm thinking about making lemon spaghetti for lunch today, so easy and delicious! Find the recipe here!
1. The clear and sunny light is beautiful in September - and i often sat outside painting what i saw, but putting it together in a new way - like these two little pieces.. They are framed in a double frame by Articulate Gallery,
2. Walking in sandals, shopping fresh fruit., veggies and flowers is one of my summer delights and every day seems special to me know - as we're approaching the beginning of fall.
3. A midday espresso, from my new coffee machine reading news from dear friends - time to breathe and make the moment count.
4. My son Marin alias Schlindwein had his first solo live gig in a funky Nhow Hotel in Berlin - so cool!
5. A mini-spa break for body and soul sometimes is just what the doctor asked for. Since a while ago i badly hurt my foot and we had many things to deal with, hubby and i treated ourselves to some much needed downtime at the gorgeous Bollants , not very far from us in Bad Sobernheim.
What else will September have in store? First of all, i hope a fabulous weekend for you my lovelies.
Visiting YOU is a highlight all through the year!
"Try to remember the kind of SeptemberWhen life was slow and oh so mellow ..."
Orange berries are ripening on the bushes and our evenings are lit by fire and warmed by a blanket on the terasse. It really feels like late summer now - and this little painting i did recently catches the mood.
It is framed in a new kind of frame i was offered to test for our magazine and website KidsLife, and i like it very much. It allows to frame artwork on paper without putting a glass over the picture, something i have often wished for. A glass can look nice, but i often feel that it takes some warmth and vibrancy away from the painting, the feel and taste of something handmade.
These framed were developed to showcase kids-art. They have a slit on the top, and you can stack and store several pieces in them if you like. For me they are great because they allow me, to quickly show a client, how a painting on paper appears when framed, Plus the rounded corners look so cool.
The frames are called Articulate Gallery - get more informations here.
