Brainstorming - New Projects

It's freezing cold here in Paris, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. It is calmer on the streets than normally, because people all try to hurry to warm places:) and don't like to stay out longer than necessary to get there.

Thank you for your sweet comments, which accompany me through the day. I feel unsatisfied if I do not post everyday, isn't that weird? Addiction? No, it's because I'm in need of communication, and even if I don't get around to answer your comments, I always try to go to your blogs to see what you're up to, to make it a creative exchange....

At the moment studio time is shortened as I'm doing some organizing of databases etc, which is something that has to be done. I miss my studio time but I always have my "metrotime" to do brainstorming for new and exciting projects....like these thoughts on two pieces which I will do for an entry into an exhibit in a Museum in Germany, the pieces have to be ready end of February. Very exciting. I'll keep you updated.

Puede ser adicción, puede ser el frío.... pero es gratificante el contacto con otros seres humanos de tan diversas latitudes del planeta tierra. Me encanta tu trabajo muy, muy creativo. Éxito en tus nuevos proyectos.
Un abrazo desde Chile

Well I dont know what was said there but It looks like this will be another fun project of yours. Is the data base you are entering for work?
Do you do it at home as well as at your work?

klaproos said...

icecubes oon the street:-)

Very exceptional for Paris and people look as if they weren't prepared to that:)

how are you doing..
it's getting even colder:-))

soulbrush said...

you have such a vivid imagination, marvellous for an artist. i also love the communication...so nice, and we can keep warm in this freezing weather too!

soulbrush said...

how many lanmguages do you speak/write?

Cestandrea said...

Cris, I do the data base at home, it is and it's a list of contacts, so that I can send out mailings with creative news...

Cestandrea said...

Klaproos, its getting still colder, and I just had my parents on the phone in Germany, they said this night temperatures will go down to 20 minus, where they live;..;brrrrrr
poor birds and poor homeless people!

Cestandrea said...

soulbrush, I speak 4 languages, English, French, German (mother tongue) and Spanish, I trained as a translator and interpreter and worked in that field before deciding to be a fulltime artist-, so to speak, although this is not quite correct cause I have a parttime safetyjob, to pay social security and my art supplies and a bit of our bread too,


katie jane said...

I'm sure all this makes perfect sense to you. Good luck on your project development. Stay warm.

sukipoet said...

this seems a bit different for you. Interesting the woman behind the squares and then the moveable squares like those puzzles. good luck working on the piece/s for your new show.

~Babs said...

So talented you are Andrea,,and multi-lingual also!
I'm sure you have much to do,,,,getting ready for the show.
We'll be waiting to see what you're doing.
(bet you're praying for hot flashes right about now)

Chris Bolmeier said...

Happy New Year Cestandria,'
You sure have many ideas going in that pretty little head of yours.

Jill Smith said...

Hi Andrea your weather must be as bad as ours, it was eleven below yesterday and its going to cost a fortune keeping places warm and just saw the weather report and there is more to come and its coming from Russia.
I know what you mean about connection with people as l live as you on my own and see one person a day who hasn't a clue about art.
I wish my cat could talk lol as she listens l think but l don't understand me- ow lanuage lol
Would love to see your friends Andrea.

Kim said...

Andrea, I really love your sketches and am finding some overlap interest here with some of the images...specifically the squares. I will talk to you more about that later, too.

The show sounds so exciting and I am eager to see how that unfolds for you, too...I enjoyed the slides of your latest show and have these huge expectations.

Like you, I am working hard on administrative issues here...also like you, I would love to be in the studio. I am remembering, though, make a mark every day!

Thanks Andrea for all of your sharing.



Artist Unplugged said...

The ideas are thought provoking. Growing up we had a puzzle made of wooden blocks that made up different faces. You could change the hair, eyebrows, eyes, ears, mouth and neck. It immediately reminded me of that puzzle. Look forward to your progress.

Dianne said...

Dear Andrea, thanks for sharing your preparation of the two paintings. It is really facinating to see how you go about your process.
Love Dianne x x

Martine said...

Yes its very cold Andrea! Minus 20 last night. To cold to heat my atelier at the moment. Is'nt the metro cosier this time of year? LOL.
You're working for a new exibition, thats interesting. Wish you would come nearer to the border so i could visit you.

aimee said...

i think it's a wonderful thing to want to post every day! it means you're inspired to create and you want to share it with the world - what could be better?

patti said...

I saw the icy streets of Paris on the tv news recently. I hope you have a pair of sturdy (and cosy) snow boots!

I so enjoyed the slide show of your exhibition. We are lucky to get sneak previews of your work here.

Tammy Vitale said...

Andrea - I miss blogging as much as I used to and I love that this year has taken off and there are all kinds of things competing for my attention. Be careful when you wish for abundance! I look forward to your latest project - your projects are always so wonderful and unique...and the metroheads seem to have just happened and blossomed into this wonderful collection of lovely drawings. Your creativity and your open loving spirit are such inspirations to me! Thanks for dropping by. Hope it has warmed up for you!
