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
