lookin' at her face
learnin' the lessons of life
deep respect



This is the second time I've painted this wonderful face. It's one of these inspirations which never let you go. Here's my first interpretation: Yangshuo Lady I've painted her nearly two years ago.

What a year - I've posted 112 painting during 2017, really a large number for me - well not as much as in 2016 but for me a lot. I'm always on my way with my art work, studying and learning, visiting workshops and seeing DVD with the Watercolor Masters and enjoying this wonderful process of growing. 
I want to thank you from my heart for your so kind interest in my work, 
your supportive comments and your so wonderful friendship 
during all this 10 !!! years (what a number, can't believe it) blogging here. 

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas 
and a fantastic, peaceful and creative 2018! 



Cordially yours,

Isabella

Auf einem Berg aus Zuckerkant, 
unter einem blühenden Machandelbaum, 
blinkt mein Pfefferkuchenhäuschen.
Seine Fensterchen sind aus Goldpapier, 
aus seinem Schornstein raucht Watte.
Im grünen Himmel, über mir, rauscht die Weihnachtstanne.
In meinem See aus Staniol 
spiegeln sich alle ihre Engel, alle ihre Lichter!
Die kleinen Kinder stehn rum 
und staunen mich an.
Ich bin der Zwerg Turlitipu.
Mein dicker Bauch ist aus Traganth, 
meine Beinchen Streichhölzer, 
meine listigen Äugelchen 
Korinthen.



Arno Holz, 1863-1929

Candles glowing
On the tree, it's christmas,
Little eyes are gleaming,
Older ones' are dreaming.

Candles glowing
Giving happiness
To all people
Everywhere on earth.


Candles glowing
Silent snowflakes falling,
Joyous hearts are singing,
Christmas bells are ringing.

People praying
Everywhere you go
Peace is, what we
Always want to know.
Candles glowing
That this world be so

This cat was my first painting during the beautiful Endre Penovác Workshop at Girona and she looks really awaiting a lot - I'm sure she was happy with all those lovely black and white cats  created around her.

This was my plein air painting during our first excursion with the Endre Penovác Workshop. We're absolutely thrilled about this lovely charming place at the Costa Brava. The sun was so very bright, nice cosy warm wind and the colors amazing crispy and clear. But these conditions are not fitting really good to the special wet-in-wet technique. We couldn't paint so quick, how the papers dry. Nevertheless we've spend a gorgeous day together with inspiring tips from our Master and having very much fun and laughing all together. Great group and fantastic organization by our beloved Angela Barbi from EPC-Art Courses.

With the Cat series I'll started with my 3rd one painting during the Endre Penovác Workshop, because I love this one most. It's completely my own, because I use my own photography of Coralie (my cat) and I'm really satisfied with the whole composition.

This little cockerel is a very good example for me, that I must be more patient. I've disturbed the granulation of the salt ... must try a new one soon.
