Baby me. Found this old sketchbook colored pencil drawing I did back in the day. Some people look the same as when they were a baby. Some I would never be able to put together. Which are you? Look just like or never guess its you?
Theres so much sunshine ! And the flowers A change in season makes it easier to practice creative observation because everything feels so fresh and you can see with new eyes. Ive been feasting on these Spring morning walks. Do you feel it too?
Is it a bright sunny morning for you? In Sweden's it's bright sunny and hitting the 70s (My perfect temp is 72º) This isn't what my desk looks like today. This vignette minus flowers is already packed up and on its way to Montenegro. Our house is in a
What gets you excited about the weekend? This is def my kind of camping @frambyudde It's such a beautiful peaceful place about 5-6 hours North of Stockholm. We didn't stay long enough.
We had to switch to day dates in Sweden. The boyfriend & I @bap_linnegatan Had to do a little watercolor it was so good. And it was #internationalhamburgerday I've never had a three stack hamburger. Have you? With pastrami?

I got off the train after dropping Joseph off at school and saw all the flowers and heard all the bees. So many bees. ? They just seemed to be calling me to play. Who was I to argue. So I spent an hour watching. And listening. And photographing. And recording. And enjoying every minute.

In our @creativeheartbeatsclub #lifebook page prompt we were to include our handprint text and fabric. Ive always wanted to do a page of text. You never know how much work someone puts into something until you try it. to those textile artists who do way
After almost 2 years away I'm home in the USA from Sweden and most of the family is here. I'll be here for a few months and the art life doesn't stop. Appreciating art doesn't have to happen only in Europe. The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art is local for me so we went with the family. With a party of 13 we split into teams and my "partner" was my granddaughter, Miss LA. We went around together looking at all the art and I got to see things that she liked and her ability to pick out things that I would like. At one point she said, "Come here Queenie, I think you'll really like this!" It was this tapestry. She was spot on. (Later my SIL said he thought the same thing)
Chasuble Back • France, Mid 1730s • Silk & Metal-wrapped Silk • In the Style of Jean Revel
Revel introduced the new weaving technique that allowed for realistic shading and the illusion of three-dimensional motifs
It's kind of well known I have a thing for flowers. Lately I've been studying Dutch florals and came across these beauties.
Speaking of florals, here's a little detail on this marble statute. So delicate.
A really fun and telling thing about Miss LA and I was the crystal cut vases. This photo simply doesn't do these vases justice in any way. I couldn't catch the brilliance of the reflected light at all. But, as Miss LA and I rounded the corner we both let out a loud, audible gasp. In unison. Then rushed closer. These are so beautiful! Miss LA and I loved them. It was delightful to have that shared experience. And it was wrapped around art.
Art is a Lifestyle. It comes in big moments (Like Museum visits) and small moments (seeing delightful details.) Appreciate them all. So Creative Friend, what's your Live Like an Artist moment today?
