Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy!
I'm looking forward to a very quiet time, and I will be back with my next post on Monday.
I made this piece last month using some DP as background. The image was printed onto book paper. Using book paper is the current challenge at TIOT. I had fun adding lots of embellishments to clear off my table. Time really does fly by:








And I have more photos of the modern art section in our Kunstpalast Museum. I'm sure some of you will be able to guess the artists:









This was one of my faves:













I spend a lot of time in this museum,  it's always a great way to pass a few hours - and you can get good coffee in the cafeteria!

Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  3. I love your latest TioT entry, Valerie. I love the focal image. I also have that one in a red rubber stamp and I love it. You added so many wonderful images, too. I love how you manage to get so many items together and somehow they all come together and work so well together.

    I absolutely LOVE the art you shared at the museum today. Some of my favorites for sure. I LOVE modern and abstract art, so these really had me studying them. Thanks for these, dear.

    1. Thanks Ella! Mostly you can take photos as you want, just in big 'extra' exhibitions you are not allowed to take pics, they want you to bu cards and books.... You have a great weekend, too!

  11. You have made me feel very inadequate as I only know a few of the artists whose work you showed, and I should know more. Please add their names so we can test ourselves!

    1. Sorry, I am sure nobody knows more than a few as several of them are German artists who are perhaps not so well known on your side of the world! Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks Erika. I need to go out, otherwise I would be alone here 24/7 and I don't want that. So I need to travel on the trams and go to other places to keep myself more or less sane!

  28. That museum has some fascinating art on display. I love modern art, and I'd have trouble picking a favorite.... I went back through, and no, can't pick a favorite :) I could spend hours there, I'm sure.
