I’ve been very busy lately. Not sure what I’m doing, but I’m loosing time… I’m getting up at 7 am. and going to bed quite late, but there’s never an hour for “work” in my own “studio”. The gardening season has started, so I guess that explains half of the time loss; add a bunch of pets and some secret big plans for the future… I’m lucky I find a few spare minutes for reading before going to bed! Well, blogging stopped being my priority for a while, yet I wanted to show you some good stuff – lovely things that I came across in the last few weeks.
– Belgian artist and sculptor Isabelle de Borchgrave. I’m in love with her paintings! (Read about her life and career on Wikipedia.)

– Summer courses in London offered by Sotheby’s Institute of Art. For e.g. what do you think to a course called European Decorative Arts? It is an introductory course which covers decorative arts from the seventeenth century to art nouveau. I think it would be really lovely to spend two or, even better, four weeks learning something new.

Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto – themes of mothers, love, transsexuality, kitchens, and tragedy told Japanese style.
Ali and Nino by Kurban Said – a beautiful love story taking place right before the 1st World War in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Die Schmetterlings-insel (The Butterfly Island) by Corina Bomann – learn what it was like to live in Sri Lanka a century ago.
