Can I do this: write regularly something which might be interesting for others to read? Is there enough excitement in my life, in my brain, to justify the attempt?
Getting started does make me quite nervous I have to admit.
My name is Andrea and I live in a blockhouse in a small village in Bavaria together with my husband, two of my three daughters and a blind but wonderful cat.
My work? I’m an artist, working mainly with oil paint on canvas. Sometimes I also create objects – objects, that then serve as material to paint on.
Art is the subject which concerns my mind most in thoughts and dreams and will be the subject of this blog.
Why? What is my reason to write? I feel I want to say more than just exhibiting finished paintings in different shows.
Of course exhibitions are an important and very necessary part of an artist’s life! But the idea of this blog is to get other people involved right in the beginning of the process of painting: from the first ideas to the finished work.
I want to fill this blog with sketches and thoughts happily mixed together. Silly ideas, which might never materialize, and photos of nearly ready works that only wait for the very last stroke of the brush.
I’m hoping to get a lot of feedback and suggestions – please feel free to take part in this process!!!
