At the studio downtown-



The city is feverishly preparing for the Olympics which means that I had to change my route to the studio downtown for my regular Friday session. Which was great fun when I didn't think of the amazing length of extra time it took to get back home because of all the detours and traffic. Truly, I love exploring new routes, but I also love coming back home.


Two more things: do you love Hanna's drawings? I do. Their simplicity and sensitivity and subtlety and gorgeous inventiveness. When I feel I need to find tranquility and gentelness and generally something that will make it 'all alright', I look at Hanna's work. Then all is alright once again!

Then there is Lisa Solomon's work and that is a different sort of love but love it is. I adore the layers of space and meaning and complexity in her work. At the same time there is brilliant clarity and 'breathing space' and beautiful color, innovation and gorgeous texture. A feast for the eyes and lots of food for thought!




Don't you love it ? All these amazing artists at your fingertips? I feel grateful, excited and inspired !

Hugs my sweet friends!

Wow! You have an Olympics coming up?? How ignorant am I of goings-on in the world ;) Sounds exciting. There must be a real buzz to the city.
Yes, I do love the silence in Hanna's work. Her works are just exquisite. But yes I have to admit that I absolutely love and adore Lisa's pieces. She is totally amazing. Thanks for this beautiful interlude in my weekend Annamaria. Kx
