Bejeweled

Standard

I made this, and titled it, last weekend and wasn’t sure if I’d post it until I read a friend’s post this evening about seeing the crown jewels in London as a boy with his Mom or his Grandma, he couldn’t recall. The best part though was how happy these memories made him. I was inspired by his memories and his joy in sharing them and then I remembered my joy in creating this little artwork. My friend, by the way, has two blogs, one is called “frogs pad” and the other is called “the black crane”. Both are here on wordpress and my family and I have created many happy memories of our own reading his blog together. I hope you enjoy and keep making art.

So, it’s been awhile but I have been making art, working and clearing snow. Hope you enjoy the finished product and for any who are interested; I had ‘the” most incredible time in London and saw the Klee exhibit at Tate Modern three days in a row as well as loads of other fabulous art! I highly recommend a visit to Tate Modern if you can manage it. It is well worth the visit. Enjoy and keep making art!

Paul Klee in my Dreams: Klee Glee

Today, I am at Tate Modern in London, England to view the Paul Klee EY Exhibit. I have loved Paul Klee’s work since first viewing it at the Bergruuen Museum in Berlin in May 2011. Since that time my deep love and understanding of Klee’s work has grown and developed. So much so that when the Tate exhibit opened on October 16, 2013 (which was also my brithday) I took it a sign and resolved myself to the fact that I would have to go and see it in person. So, as you read this, I am in my “Klee Glee” settled in front of one of Klee’s works in London. When it comes to art, follow your heart and let it be your guide. I did!

I love these Christmas flowers. When I was growing up my mother always managed to keep them around for long after the Christmas decorations had be stored. This year, I have managed to do the same, with the help of my husband who has lovingly nursed them while I have been working some long hours. I hope you enjoy this February flower and perhaps you can think of something that you would like to nuture along, long after it’s usual season is long completed. Keep making art!

I have a wonderful and life long friend named Stella who lives an ocean away from me. I miss her dearly and think of her often. I also love the work of Frank Stella and somehow each time I see his work with its vibrant energy, I think of my friend Stella and the friendship that has lasted and will continue to last a lifetime. To all of my friends here on wordpress and around this big wide world of ours, you mean so much to me. Thank you for hanging on for these two years I’ve been blogging and as always, keep making art…whatever your art may be!!

Watercolourist is moving again!!!

Standard

Hi folks, this is my first blog including text only.  Just wanted to let you know that I am still around and still reading blogs but I am moving at the moment and have been extremely busy with the move and finishing up at work before I go on vacation.  Hopefully, I can start blogging and making art again as soon as possible as I am certainly feeling the fact that I haven’t put brush to paper or canvas for almost a month!!!  Unheard of in the past three years and becoming intolerable!!  I am admiring the art around me daily, from the art I find in the natrual environment to the clothing people wear to all of your fabulous blogs!!  Wish me luck in getting back to the studio (or some semblance of a studio) very soon!   All the best and keep making art!!!  Blog on my friends,  Lorelei x

Recently I attended the wedding of my neice.  I managed to catch this shot later in the evening and thought it very relaxed and fitting that grandmother and granddaughter should share a special moment in time together on such a beautiful day.  Enjoy, cherish your special moments with the generations before you and keep making art!
