inspiration

Yesterday, I was walking from here to there, for a couple of hours, through spring and forest land. Just wonderful. The green on the trees is still very delicate and does not cover the forest, yet. All the light get still down to the ground where it warms the moist mushroomy earth and caresses the […]

being busy here

Good morning from Zurich on this bright Sunday after a busy week under a blue sky. The sun was basically shining every day, full power, since I got back from the US, every day it got a bit warmer, and hence I did my mails on the balcony, often and happily. There, blinking into the […]

rosemary

My rosemary bush is in full bloom. Just lovely. In the background of today’s picture, featuring the small bright blue rosemary flowers you may also see some tulips in bright sunlight.

the moon at 5 am

Today, Easter Mondays, is a holiday here, and things are quiet around here. Thus, no busy streets, no rush and no newspaper. But the perfect full moon this morning, and about a thousand birds singing under a dark sky, at 5 am. They ot up early and so did I. I could not help it […]

training and talking

Today’s picture is part of what we did in yesterday’s watercolor class: still life with artichoke. From very detailed studies using pencils to going wild. Still lives are not easy, but a perfect training to see, and draw. I have to come back to artichoke, though… That was one highlight yesterday, the other was a […]
