Therefor, the other week, I had the great pleasure to be a guest at the premiere of her current show: Die Tagebücher von Adam & Eva (The diaries of Adam & Eve). The story, adapted by the book of Mark Twain, gives a pretty good and ironical insight on the life's of Adam and Eve. It shows, constantly changing from the female to the male perspective, how the two fell for each other in Garden Eden, how they've spoiled it by taking a bite from that fateful apple and how they'll dealed with the results of that bite. The orginal text might be over a hundred years old, the Musical version though leaves you with a lot of quite familiar situations and conflicts. Almost everybody in the audience had that expression on they're face, when you feel caught by a very well recognized moment. I, at least, had many of those moments during the two hours watching.
So, if you're in the mood for some good tunes (I have loved the music), two absoutely stunning actors (equally talented singers) and lots of laughter, don't miss your chance to visit one of the upcoming shows of Die Tagebücher von Adam und Eva. I promise you, you'll have a great night.

studio dinner. A brand new week lies ahead of us now and I'll wonder is it the Queen of Colors finding me or do I paint the days, with what I need most? Happy Monday to all of you.

P.S. In case somebody knows anything about the ghosts of iraq, I would love to hear about it.

Berlin's Street Food Market, we were guests at a special theatre premiere and there was wine with our favourite wine dealer. I've spent many hours painting, finished the last projects for my online class, while the husband went cooking for several huge events. And here we are now, Sunday night, a bit exhausted, but smiling. And putting another edge on this week's Queen of Colors, a good dose of super green, freshly made Ruccola Pesto with our Minestrone. Have another happy Spring Week, starting tomorrow.

calendar this month, the music has changed. Big time. After a hard to chew on period of slow motion progress, dark, freezing days and a bit of a trapped feeling, the sun is back. A bit shy still on Friday, hesistant again the day after, but by this morning, she was there; powerful, bright and surprisingly warm already. This week's Queen of Color is dedicated to the sun, to the bright orange spots all over the Fishbowl. A week filled with a super fun online course (more about that over the next days!), with a surprise cake send by my mother to cheer us up, with another round of training lessons for Emma the Labrador, to become an Assistant Dog, and a week filled with many studio hours and successful steps on finishing the grumpy man, who actually isn't that grumpy any more. So, with all that sunlight in my face, I wish for her to stay a while and to make the upcoming week a bright one as well.

text, on the idea of silencing all that noise. Not music or a good conversation with a bunch of friends, but all that unnecessary stuff we tend to surround ourselves with. This was all about the chatter of people on the outside; people who have an opinion on what you do or people, who believe they might have to safe you. Probably coming with a bunch of good intentions and a lot of love. Though I would consider myself a pretty strong minded woman, this text stuck with me. All over, while painting, while reading emails and while trying to stay focused on the little pebbles; I needed to move throughout this studio day. Something about those words made me nervous and left a bit of an insecure taste on my tongue. I've chatted on the phone with a rather distant collegue, a friend called, talking about his financial fears to go on working as an artist and that maybe, we shouldn't proceed with that, and then, I needed to tell of a kid, actually more it's mother, for constantly knocking on the studio window. The mother got pretty angry with me and left, calling me hysterical. Well, normal big city stuff. And, all this did leave an effect on me. All the bits and pieces of those conversations slightly changed my mood, from driven in the morning, to hesitant in the aftermoon. They did influence the mood of moi, the strong minded woman. Of course, this is only an example and of course, we should not stop talking to our friends and family, but maybe, once in a while, it is good to be reminded of the fact, that not everything that people will tell us, is really connected to us. And that sometimes, it is much smarter to concentrate on your inner music and to silence the noise, that is not yours.

calendar page. This is my little, monthly present for you, dear readers. Another drawing for you to download and to print out. Simply click on the link for the april page and choose a size. I strongly hope, that the green and the red will tickle that sleepy Spring and finally kick the old Winter out. If it doesn't, well, a little smile on your face will make up for a good starter too.
