Study the Past 2017

.
- January 2017 

Time for a serene and peaceful winter walk along the bright river Elbe with its frosty edges and wide open sky about this beautiful scene.




Study the past, if you would divine the future.

- February 2017 

This is an indoor month with a lot of watercolor paintings and photographic experiments with light and flowers.




- March 2017 

I'm deeply infected with painting undersea animals in watercolor and so the decision was clear, we'll visit SEALIFE, Hannover. It was such a wonderful and touching experience and with a lot of lovely models to paint later at my studio. I took zillions of photos (not so easy with the less light inside) and had a fantastic Café moment for finishing this wonderful day.




- April 2017 

Nature and Garden awakes with fresh green, thousand tiny flowers and I enjoy spending first afternoons with gardening and nice walks and a dreamy weekend trip to the island SYLT.




- May 2017 

Finally we've visited after five years abstinence one of our all time love points FUERTEVENTURA - that's one of the canary islands next to north Africa. We've enjoyed very much being there again, our gorgeous rented house - with a nice swimming pool (OMG!!! - I love jumping direct from bed into the pool) and the relaxing and peaceful rhythms of this place. And we'd there a very special adventure with three cute kitten --> here you can read the whole story.




- June 2017
 
Best month to enjoy all this work done at our garden is June, all the roses (and there are a lot of roses at our garden) are in full bloom - every year again it's absolutely breathtaking and I feel so blessed for this chance in life to plan a garden by myself and to enjoy all its ups and downs. Our cottage garden is now 15 years old and looks exactly like in my dreams.




- July 2017 

Summer in Lower Saxony means living outdoor as much as we can. I love these long evenings when the sun won't leave us.



- August 2017 

 
2017 was the year of visiting really long not seen favorite holiday places. In August we've spend a wonderful week on the island Juist, North Sea - Germany.




- September 2017 

Next in this series was a visit at Freiburg, Breisgau - South Germany with a stopping by at Alsace, France. I'd lived there 30 years ago and it was deeply touching to revisit these lovely city and region. One of my gorgeous memories are the wonderful moments on the daily farmers market Munsterplatz, around the Cathedral of Freiburg.





- October 2017 

With great steps Autumn comes around the corner, so it's time for planning a new Fine-Art-Snail Calendar with my little friends.




- November 2017 

No grey, no tristesse for me - rather Spanish sun, the awesome city of Girona,  lovely trips to beautiful locations,  new friends, great and intensive workshop with Endre Penovác perfectly organized by Angela Barbi EPC-Art Courses - Catalunya my new love!!





- December 2017 

Yayoi Kusama's "Infinity Mirrors" room. This very outstanding experience is a part of the beautiful LOOP EXHIBITION at the Museum of Art in Wolfsburg.






I'm so grateful for this marvelous year full of unforgettable moments and I hope that you enjoy this review as much as I do. 


All my best wishes for 2018 dear friend. 

Hugs and Kisses


yours isabella
