A gift , a lifetime gift: start collecting ” SMALL ART”

A painting , a real painting on your wall makes an impact in your life. It is a living object, something that will  speak to you and will be with you where ever you go. It is a part of every day life  and you will remember .

Good art does not have to cost much, we are all influenced by the price of old masters and fancy galleries. do not think if it did not cost much – it can not be good.

Most important is that one likes the work and is not afraid to embrace modern art.

The older style of art was once new as well and shocking to the critic, so just because one can not say – it is a “Picasso” does not mean the painting is not good, not all Picasso art is good just because some one says so.

see it my way

My art is abstract because feelings, dreams, and illusions do not have
forms or boundaries.
There is nothing more exciting than an empty canvas and the need to use it
I like to give colour a certain independence and liberty in my work. I see a picture, say – a landscape – I connect it with my inner emotional space to establish color and shape in my mind but the base of my vision is still the landscape.
What I commit to canvas is an effort to capture both the external picture
and my internal response through colour and shape but also to think new, not been done before and push art in new directions.

statement ,

Can you believe it, I have not painted a new painting for about 4 month now, moving von Abbotsford BC to Vancouver Island, finding a likeable house took all the energy I had and probably something else as well, the inspiration, urge, the wonder of discovery, the ( der innere Drang) the nerve to relax or the opposite the tension to create.
But I am getting there, tomorrow comes a landscaper to help me set the garden in to a “no lawn ‘ property, it sure is strange how my painting is connected with a garden , somehow the unfinished totally neglect garden around the house is stopping me from doing anything else.. we people are complicated creatures.

Romance is the expressive and pleasurable feeling in the context of romantic love relationships.

(I quote) romance usually implies an expression of one’s strong romantic love, or one’s deep and strong emotional desires to connect with another person romantically.

Historically, the term “romance “originates with the medieval ideal of chivalry. Humans have a natural inclination to form bonds with one another through social interactions, be it through verbal communication or gestures. Like giving flowers .An interpersonal relationship is a strong, deep, or close association or acquaintance between two that may range in duration from brief to end

BEFORE I DIE or Watch out

2015
A year to stand up and be counted for
Rethink age! – Never ever say to me “Oh you are already 80 and still painting” – insult-
When will we change our ways – we have to accept that soon there will be more old people then young . Only a few of them will just lay down and die. We are here to stay and want to be respected as artists not just old artists. We are smoothing the future for the next generation with even more stamina to be active, watch out!!!
Aging woman are very competitive and better artists, watch out!!
Experience, frustration and endurance makes us good. Watch out!!
Once there was only ONE “Grandma Moses” now we are many – so do not ignore that, watch out!!
Love to write all this down at the dawn on my next move into new adventure with my loving husband for – a long, long time. Watch out.

We all have to go soon or later with a loved one to the emergency and watch the heart monitor doing its work, up and down and down and up, zigging along , a scary site because we know when this thing is starting to relax and going in a straight line – it is over,.

So what I did –  I started to think about my work, painting how could I put this on paper , so it does not look so scary, and here is what I came up with,

It is amazing how art( in my case painting )can  lead you into a more relaxed mood.
