When people ask me,
"Who would you love to meet...
more than anyone else in this world."
I smile...and they HAVE TO ADD...
"A LIVING person!"
(I've shared my fondness of B. Potter)
I longingly respond...
I've treasured her art & words
from the day she was introduced to America!
I have over 50 pages from Libelle Magazine
filled with GORGEOUS images...
It doesn't bother that they are
not written in English...words are not necessary.
A shelf in my studio is dedicated to her books,
journals, date books etc. I have a box of her
greeting cards~ during college they were
all that I could afford...I've selfishly kept them!
I have two prints of hers...
My favorite, an image with two wheel barrels,
"The garden is calling..."
Professors would have us researching famous
artists and have us describe what moved us
in their works, style, concepts, design etc.
I like some of the masters...but RELATE to MB.
We find beauty in the same things~
I love what I know.
I love what is directly in front of me.
Everyday moments that I LOVE to paint.
It is a joy to see the way Marjolein
brings nature to life!
Inspiring and treasured~
