Jam Sessions in Club Voltaire

It is a very authentic club in Frankfurt.
I went there a couple of weeks ago with Valeria and other friends.
There was open stage and different musicians and singers making music having fun. We had fun too, it was a great atmosphere and I sketched while dancing a bit and  drinking some beer. That's all you need to be happy: friends, music, beer...
At this evening I just had a red pen with me... so a bit bloody sketches here.

Palmengarten ...

again!
We are having a very grey, dark, grey, rainy Februrary (not today!). It is also very cold, so on Sunday there is not much joy to go for a hike. That's why a couple of weeks ago I went for a walk to the Palmengarten in Frankfurt. There is cosy and green, and if it is raining you can go inside and feel a bit tropical, even if it is still dark and grey! ūüíö

 First I tried to stay outside, and I sat under a evergreen tree to paint this majestic Beech tree with oil pastels which are good when it is wet and raining... but the rain didn't want to stop so I moved inside to paint more greenery and the crazy Orchideas blooming! wow, they look a bit like aliens to me...

Feliz 2019

Ay ay! I have to catch up this good whish for you all ūüíĖ, at least before January is over :D and before Spring comes... that will come, yes !!

The 2018 was a crazy year with a couple of big changes that came like surprises, some old dream coming true this year, like quitting the music lessons and making a living from my art ..  And because life is a yinyan, was not all roses in 2018..,
I am confident and optimist about this already starting 2019 and I wish also your dreams to come true. I am sure now that it can ever happen, so keep on with it!
I will also try to update ofter this blog, as I forgot it a bit due to the easiness and comfort of using Instagram, for those using it also  -->
