exhibition notebook : Kids playing

Kids playing in my exhibition notebook, inspired by the Emil Nolde exhibition I visited last Wednesday. Two exhibitions I visited lately : "Picasso et Manet" in the Musée d'Orsay, and "Emil Nolde" in the Grand Palais. So much to tell and show you but I need a bit more time to prepare these posts.

Have a wonderful day, make some marks or lines or brush strokes or stitches, write a sentence or two, whatever keeps your mind inspired....and have fun doing it:)
love
andrea

Hi Andrea
glad stepdaughter ok,
Have a great weekend

Hello Andrea,

It is great to hear Axelle is better and will be back home today. It is difficult to find that balance for anyone, but when you have it forced on you (like with an illness) it is even more difficult. I am sure she will do well, though. I know you and your husband were frightened at first...or I would have been.

I understand just what you mean about preparing everything. I see to be having a problem getting photos made these days. I have been making art, making a mark, etc., however getting images of them is completely another story.

Right now is not the time to be going to galleries and museums in the Washington, DC area. It is probably the best for me not to add any more confusion to the mix. Many of the museums are along the Mall, between the Capital and White House. Maybe after Tuesday will be a better choice.

I love this drawing a lot. I can see the inspiration, but it is very much Andrea!

Have a Beautiful Day!

So Glad Axelle is better and ready to come home. Diet is a hard one. So many luscious things to eat, or eating on the run etc that maybe arent good for a person. On the other hand, maybe she will have a growing interest in food. I read a wonderful book called Food and Healing years ago. I find food fascinating in that sense.

Love the children playing. I have been trying to make a mark a day, thanks to your and Kim's suggestion. It takes me beyond my mundane self.

Be well, and many prayers to Axelle.

Good news about Axelle what a relief, I like your brightly coloured new heading and the children reading is simple and delightful.

It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.
- Greek Proverb
I read this - this morning and thought of your Axelle. What a wonderful lesson to learn at only 24. Hugs to you Andrea.

Excellent news!
It's always the unknown that is scarey. Now that she knows the problem it will be easier to deal with it.
Love the drawing,,,it's so Andrea!

I love your drawing, so simple and so cheerful. I know you and your husband breathed a sigh of relief over Axelle's health....it is a shame that she has to live with a solution on a daily basis but thankfully there are changes that can help her feel better. You and others inspire me to attempt more with my art...thanks.

wonderful news! best wishes to you and axelle as she adjusts to life back home... and i love your new banner :)

Happy to hear that Axelle is doing better. It is hard to find the right balance between food and ones body sometimes. What someone else can eat doesnt work for others. So I hope she can follow thru. A relief it isnt serious to all of you. Love the drawing. very peaceful.

PS.. I bet Oscar is wondering when does the back devil go home? :))

Martine said...

Yes i made my mark today Andrea, as i should everyday.
And wrote a sentence...............it was fun.

klaproos said...

that's good to read she's doing betternow andrea, another worry to let go of,
i like th e painting of these kids,
that looks good:-)

Lynn said...

Oh my, I got so behind in blog visits that I missed a whole chunk of your LIFE. I am so sorry.
I am glad I am learning that Axelle is getting better now (I missed her going into the hospital and the cat visiting etc etc)...
I pray they have found the problem and that it will be fixable and she will be good as new very soon.
Poor kitty being hounded by this black cat who thinks he must take over the territory. Or perhaps he just misses Axelle terribly and this is his way of showing it.
I love the women and beast painting and it makes a great banner Andrea!
I too hope you are having a good weekend!!!! Hugs. and Hugs for Axelle too. How scarey at just 24 to be in the hospital. Tell her I wish her well. How is dad handling all this?

This is in so many ways a lovely narrative... but also one with so many parts that are tough to take and understand for what they are...

I hope everything works out... and I don't mean the cat!

A big thanks to you... first for sharing this story... and also for just being you... and being a part of this wonderful community...

From my heart...

JP

Hopper said...

I wasn't clear...

I decided that when I re-read my comment...

Thank you for being so compassionate...

thank you for having such heart...

You are one in a million...

Wish your world to only shine...
