Right now I'm in a painting school of Nik Anikis Skušek, master painter who I respect as a master, teacher and as a pesrson a lot.
It was perfect decision that I came to his school because I really needed some gap between my normal work and something, let us say - call.
So here we are breathing knowledge, learning from mistakes.
Completely adore that moments. Thank you, dear teacher.
So dear all I made it! Beautiful notebooks out from my illustrations and paintings.
And I've been in Rome. Such a mysterious city, sad, with an open sky. Full of trash and rumor but you can still feel all the power of an ancient Rome.
Just love it. Some of new notebooks were staying there and I'm just happy. Stories, life, energy, everything is a flow. Precious moments ...
Včasih se zgodi, da se zimi nenadoma začne silno muditi. In vendar z vso zmešnjavo vred, ki jo prinese trženje, iskanje materialov, slikanje, preverjanje, priprava za tisk, sejmi, razstave, ..., nekako neka esenca je. Nekaj žmohtnega v vseh teh stikih, valovanju, napenjanju.
Le zen, počitek vmes, tako nujen in potreben. Spanje ob 13h, delo ob 3h, pa zopet spanje, izklop, vklop, kakor bi ugasnil in prižgigal stikalo. Sedaj je vse to. Ob enem. Eno ob drugem. Postavlejno v vrsto, ko bi tako rado preskakovalo eno čez drugo. Poskuša, vendar krotim, krotim jezdece vsegapreveč. Vse ob enem, eno ob drugem.
This portrait means a lot, lot to me. It's for my daughter Krasa for her 18th birthday. And yes, I was working on it for 5 months. It's oil technique and tempera grassa combined.
Thanks, my lady that I'm your mother. You are gorgeous!
Do you remember, my ex choir Artes liberales - when we sang that? 1993 ...
I enjoyed a lot!
For me the best was when our conductor Matjaž Barbo "made" us sang this pp and ff. We followed him like o, gosh. 30 people in choir and in pp you know that we sang but didn't listen almost anything. In ff we almost ruined a church or a place where we sang, all red in our faces. Pure waving through space and sound still in my mind as a memory.
It was Magnificat for real. Thanks Matjaž and cosingers.
So, this is it.
Decision in a moment.
Just sharp look and o, gosh, this must be it!
You stop the car trying to find a good place for the photo.
Sun will come out soon, so you need to be fast.
Then you see a lonely bird. You run over the field very careful that it will not fly away.
And sun is coming out. Beautiful. Snap! Everything in 5 minutes.
Good morning folks!
Takole. Ena voščilnica je že. Raziskovala sem in tuhtala in se odločila za takle pravljični motiv. Tudi v koledarju bo.
Zanimivo je, kako se potapljamoš v vedno nove svetove, vedno nove energije prihajajo naproti. Za leto 2017 bi si želela pravljic, čim več. In načrtno. Te dneve le risem in slikam in se pripravljam tudi na Bienale ilustracij. Naporno, čudovito!
Ko ti iz galerije sporočijo, da so pa Američani navalili na tvojo sliko, jo sneli z okvirja, zavili, zapakirali, zaščitili, dali na ramo z vrvicami in odšli z velikim nasmehom na obrazu. Če to ni skeri šsit. Vesela, da se to očitno tako lahkotno da narediti. Sama sem svoje snete slike vedno le debelo gledala, vse je bilo krmežljavo, zmečkano, grozovit občutek nemoči me je vedno obhajal.
Srečno pot v Ameriko, lepotica!
Sicer pa priprave na Bienale ilustracije. Morda se pa vendarle udeležim. Ne vem. Še en skeri sšit. Kaj nam je tega treba bilo? Morda pa ignoriram letos in pridem nazaj čez 4 leta. Hm, še vedno zelo na tanki virtualni meji nečesa povsem nesnovnega.
Of course there is music. I'm just looking for Mr. Cameron Carpenter.
He will have a concert in Cankarjev dom, Slovenia. You know one of that organ man.
It will be completely perfect I think.
I was a big fan of one of most good organist I know. Primož Ramovšs.
I liked his improvisations, his perfect sense of humor, his energy.
Ok, there are a lot of music even from under his fingers I couldn't listen, sorry. But at the same time just - music is pure magic. In all feilds. I like classic music, then tango, blues, jazz, punk. I like zen music. Music is waving through us. Like life ...
Last few months I'm walking a lot. And trying to catch ideas, sketching them sometimes. Sometimes making collages in my mind and trying to concentrate into projects which are comming all the time continuously.
I like to travel and see different things. You know I'm preety much very excited about how hard people are working. Or in the past. Look at that stone. Who made it? And how many stones became sculpture, house ...
I'll give you some information or links to interesting sites in next posts. Go read them. And I'll put some my sketcehs or photographies also.
First. The Botanic Garden in Oxford. Small but beautiful with so many different flowers. Papirus, lotus, ... Here is a link to page and some photographies.
