Summer gathering Geraardsbergen | 2018



It was a warm/hot welcome in the summerly
house of sweet Nadine (tiny woolf) and later at eve we,
Barbara Böttcher and Nadine Paduart, Patrice Aarts and me,
climb on the 'mountain' to find the blood moon behind the clouds.
 I've made this moon eclipse ring for this sensation.


a little bit later, meanwhile, in Hamburg my husband J. took this pic
of the blood moon from the rooftop of the Castle at the Eisenbach ;-)




The next day, Saturday, we've worked in the beautiful mooie
studio with some gelliprinting, drawing, carving, cleaning the world!



delicious food and, and, and pure joy

Patrice's choice of my prints. I like!





At Sunday we've catch the train to Brussels




had a coffee close to the fleamarket









at Marissa's



and we've had a nice dinner at l'atelier de ville,
 a concept store with restaurant, wood works and clothes







and finally, after years of longing to find 
the art of Borremans and Jan Fabre in the royal palace!
But first our ritual mirror photo...
sorry, it's blurry





paintings of Michael Borremans in the bureau of the King from Belgium

the art by Jan Fabre at the ceiling and one chandelier in the hall of mirrors











And after having fritjes (look, the colors of Belgium!) 
we've driven/flew back home...

Thank you very, very much, dear Nadine,
for your generously hospitality! Love every minute!
I love us, Ladies: Barbara Böttcher, Nadine Paduart and Patrice Aarts!

More photos? here!


Love,
Ariane. Rose.

In the heat - looking forward to our summergathering 2018!



At Sunday, as I come into the kitchen,
a big heat wish me a good morning. These bloom!



Pink with some fresh squeeze of turquoise in addition






In the other room, the salon, of the Castle at the Eisenbach
I found a new arrangement with some tones/props of Summer

and later I found time










to read my book (moon glow by Michael Chabon)
on the balcony besides more lilies
til the moon rose



The other night


the pink lilies and gladiolas found their way
from the kitchen to the balcony, too:
Sleeping with windows wide open
they let my dreams become more aromatical



I hope you're having a good time.
Only four three two one days to go til our summergathering 2018,
this time in Geraardsbergen, again, yay!

Love, Ariane.
