I’m loving my most recent project . . . painting unicorns (based on the Lisa Frank character) and castles in a little girl’s ‘secret’ playroom! – yes, it’s quite small in there.

‘Huge Woman Contemplating in the Desert’
One of the biggest paintings I’ve done to date got out. 70x100cm; 27,56×39,37in. Oil on canvas. The painting portrays a huge female figure contemplating. The figure stands for an open and constantly working mind, the size of it shows what it is capable in each of us while the female sex was chosen because of its ability to give ‘birth’. The desert is a symbol of non-conformity which ‘big’ mind’ tend to create, usually leaving ‘contemplator’ alone though.

I have been looking at all the photos you posted and I love the idea. Immediately one picture popped up in my mind. It was taken 2 years ago, in Munich at the European juggling convention. I love it because for me it represents freedom, and the changes in my life and my thinking that I made after that event.
Here is my foot hooping under the Munich sunny sky.
Beautiful shot, bet that is easier than, no, that doesn’t look easy…lol
When I was small, my grandfather, Rolf Keller, who was a graphic artist, made this picture of me while I was sleeping. The date shows April 16th, 1964. The logo of my grandfather is a stylized 24, because in 1924 he had become self-employed. He had been living in Chemnitz in Saxony (during the time of the German Democratic Republic, that city had been renamed “Karl-Marx-Stadt”. Now, it is Chemnitz again.
I’m emotional, and spontaneous too. That is why is very important to me to work for myself and to do something I love. Sweet dream, isn’t it? I can make a pair of earrings inspirated by the vikings, native indians, love or springs. It’s my art, my inner world, feelings and thoughts. I guess this is valid for every artist. I do not take into consideration the demand, but I want to proceed with the jewelry making and I need some time to think and work on my style. I have to take a new direction and find an inexperienced source of inspiration. ( east, far east sounds good to me )
I’m learning myself alone, trying new things, experimenting with the stuff I have. I’m grateful for the support I’ve found here. I met great people and their wonderful blogs. The encouragement and the appreciation of the endeavour to create something are much more important than the question: “Would I put this on my ears or not?”. To make art is not easy, even if you are a genius. I believe that every piece of art has its own beauty, everything deserve a “like”, but as it is in life – some objects are getting more stars than the others. Work, talent, charm, luck – probably somewhere in the middle. So, let’s do it – with heart and love – the road is more important than the destination!
Great words, wonderful picture!

The artist’s foot.
The Artist’s foot (1876) belongs to Adolph Friedrich Erdmann von Menzel.
He was seventy-one at the time, and probably the most popular German painter living. In portraying his own foot he is claiming to the artist’s unlimited power of choice.
He has also left us a few portraits of his right hand (being left-handed).
(No doubt, von Menzel could hardly have guessed how popular foot self-portraiture would become in our days…).
Very detailed and great painting!

I took the picture at my apartment in Stuttgart to try out a new digital camera.
I got curious about Toemail, visited the site, liked the idea, got inspired to create the picture and posted it on the web.
Nice, but you didn’t have to go all fancy on our account.

Drawing, not sleeping and worry
Despite my best efforts sleep and get rest, they still seem so hard to achieve.
At night I can’t sleep because I worry about the door locks. I worry about dangerous things around the house that Toddler could kill herself with. I worry about whatever it is I have to achieve the next day. I worry about dying and then I get worked up and think I can outdo anything – if I just stay awake.
I think about Johnny Cash and his lyrics: ‘I felt the power of death over life’ and then I think of my ex boyfriends car, ( and my toe prints on the dashboard ), and I think about how that was another lifetime, when such trivial things mattered and now I have this life that is my responsibility.
And then I feel sad, because there is no one by my side to calm me down. Talk me back to rational. Pat me on the back. You’re doing OK Lily.

For reasons I’m not able to fully articulate, I have a big time weakness for collage, photomontage and its related disciplines. Maybe it’s because the method, (if not the necessary level of skill or pictorial sense), seems tantalizingly within reach; maybe it’s the combination of destruction and construction.
The examples here come from a lucky flea market find in Berlin. Unfortunately I’m unable to credit the artist as they were unsigned and, while the source images appear to be from 1950s/1960s magazines, it’s unclear whether the collages also date from this period or whether they were compiled after the fact.
