This weekend I indulged again in a little ME-Day at the Hamburger Kunsthalle (art museum) again – and oh I so love it!
Amazing part of a painting by Max Ernst “Grätenblumen” (1929) – love the texture! Overpainted the painting underneath and then used the texture as an inspiration for his new piece.
Then our little group went to the workshop room and we had a huge amount of art postcards for selection.
And the fun began ;) Just picking some cards and then start looking what you could do with them. Here is what I picked first :
Or looking at a Pablo Picasso “Woman in red armchair” (1939)
and turning her into the Red Haired Girls’ Scout- LOL ;) (she is big on eye shadow I think ;) )
We had so much fun- I can’t tell you how much this group of mostly older women and a couple younger ones were giggling and laughing throughout the day. We had a wall going where we were just pinning our cards – and it was the best just looking at them in between….turning into more giggles.
What I learned from this day…actually something about me. “Wow- Nat- impressive, you learned something about yourself on your Me-Day!” ;)
I learned that what I do in my art work is totally ok ….I am ok, my work is ok and I love what I do, that is ALL that counts :) There are other people who get the stuff I am doing and I do not have to feel like an outsider – what will be will be!
I went home filled with lot’s of inspiration and being content about my work. (let me embrace that and stop thinking I sound arrogant- LOL …it might be over tomorrow when the little voice is nagging again- LOL) What a better end than that for a Me-Day :)
I wish you a gorgeous day!!!!
