Drawing challenge #29: WINDOW

One hundred years ago 
the frensh painter Robert Delaunay draw the Eiffel Tower of Paris in his window pictures. When I look out of my window I can see the Hamburg TV Tower... so today I've painted that tower in his simultanious contrast manner. 
 First I've thought about the sentence 'the eyes are the window to the soul' and draw my eyes looking in a mirror in kind of Jasmin manner. I've been in the remembering of Salvador Dali and his wife and muse Gala. But then I remind me that it means 'the eyes are the gateway to the soul'.

In my twenties...

I was very much nostalgic, fallen in love with the Golden Twenties. So I've done my make-up and my hairstyle in that way, reading lots of books about the artists of the time.

Do you know how I feel when I've been to the cinema looking
Woody Allen's 'Midnight In Paris'?

Something like home... familiarly.

For more windows of this week's drawing challenge please look through the windows of your eyes through the window of your display to the window of dear host of the week: Jasmin.

Spätsommer / Late summer

Die Königin von der Burg am Eisenbach
weilte kurz im Park von Eppenthorp. 
Dieses milde Licht... dieser Duft der Bäume und Erde... Es ist Spätsommer geworden! Kurzerhand wird in der Küche die Dekoration gewechselt: 
Die Muscheln und die Bilder von der See werden abgehängt und gegen die Obstteller ausgetauscht. 

 The Queen of the Castle at the Eisenbach 
lingered at the park of Eppenthorp. 
This mild light... this fragrance of trees and soil... It has become late summer! 
Suddenly the decoration of the kitchen is changed: 
The shells and the pictures from the seaside are taken down and exchanged against the fruits plates.

wird die Szenerie durch das Licht der rosa Lampe (die die Königin im Galopp gefangen hatte) beschienen.

In the evening 
the scenery lamplit by the rose one (that the Queen has catched at a galopp).

Drawing Challenge #28: MONKEY

For this week's drawing challenge the theme is Monkey. First I miss a Monkey for turmoil, rumpus...

Than I find a book and some music of the Peters: The Woman and the Ape of Peter Høeg and Stadtaffe of Peter Fox.

 But than I recognize that my youngest child is born as a monkey in the chinese horoscope! She is a very friendly person who is doing little jokes and bring us laughters... 

The muse has kissed me: 
For my school beginner I draw a hornbook: 
'Aa wie Affe' means in English 'Mm like Monkey'.

I grounded a 24x30cm canvas with acrylic and draw with pastel colour. The monkey's rock is added with a photo of a heap of suitcases from the German Vogue.

 For more Monkeys get over to the Swedish Sock Festival of rocking Elisabeth!

Drawing/Art Challenge #27: METAMORPHOSIS

The Queen of the Castle at the Eisenbach
look out of the window and beheld a soughing flying swan. 

But... is it really a swan?

Maybe is it a woman who is coated in a plumage like the Swan Maiden... ?

Or is it the other way around and a woman take off her clothes and transmutes into a Swan like a Valkyrie which fly away from her husband after seven years of hymen...?

For this week's drawing challenge with Metamorphosis I chose to paint a swan. 
I've taken an 'old' canvas and paints it over with a remain of colour from my mom's last renovation... so its a kind of metamorphosis also...

Do you know the fairy from Hans Christian Andersen 'The Ugly Duckling'?  This fairy tells about the maturing process in a very lucid way.

Couples of swans are faithful and both takes care of their children... Tomorrow its 13 years ago that my husband and I said YES... and I've nothing on to fly away.

Marriage - or the art of metamorphosis together in everyday life.

This sweet drawing is from Irena Andersen, my lovely sis.
