Carnival in Cologne

and the people are getting nuts. I don´t understand why humans masquerade as someting. That makes no sense to me!

ok, I admit. Some of them are real cute in their costumes........................

......Maybe I should also try it.....

vintage


I got a big steel drum full of vintage toys from my brother. I think I´m going to make something out of it.

Do you also love those little shops that sell unique handmade gifts? They are often located in places you wouldn´t expect them. Take a look at these 2 beautiful, tiny shops: Geschmackssachen , Facteur Celeste

You also have to see the studio of Lili Nalovi and Jesko Wilbert

plans...ideas...next projects

these and many more are in my mind and wait to be realized. Meanwhile I´m working on the series "wounded - wrapped" and try to stick to it. I don´t know how many unfinished paintings lean on walls and therefore I try to discipline myself as far as possible to finish a "project" before I get started with a new one. We will see if it works ;-)

I was happy to get a nice email from the Portugal artist Graça Pereira da Costa (Graça Paz) this week. You have to see pictures of her lovely artwork and also visit her blog.

On Thursday I will leave for a few days and can´t post before next week. Hope to see you then again :-)

You make us happy, happy, happy if you leave your comment :-)

thanks & cheerio,
Friederike! and Sandra

here we go - I will post in english :-)

it´s is a big challenge for a sheep to write in english. But I recognized most of my readers are english speaking. So, I decided to make this change. I will do my very best - promise. But please be patient my english may be different - sheep english :-)


I want to introduce my beloved friend Mabel to you. Mabel is a writer, we have a very heartfelt friendship since years. Unfortunately she lives about 600 km away from me. And we don´t meet so often, but we talk every day on the phone. She means so much to me, she is my inspiration and my companion, on the artist´s way. Mabel will post a reportage every friday (language is german). Read her first article


...after I tried to stop a cattle carrier. Yes, I´d love to hear it....."poor Friederike!"

Inspiration at my cost... Sandra is doing a new series now, called "wrapped", or "woundend". She is still indecisive.

And last but not least, I want to show you this and this (a very inspirational site by cynthia korzekwa)
