The Great War

That was the name for the 1st World War when nobody thought there will be another so soon...

I must say that I "experience" this horrific episode in the history of human kind very often - right from my now small Ottawa Studio.
I often reproduce images from various public collection and the collection of War Art from the Canadian War Museum is most impressive.

On it's summery 100th anniversary Canada celebrated  her immense contribution to this war.
One of the smaller vehicles commemorating that time was an edition of large prints of en immensely poignant images of the ravages of war.

 It is a somber depiction, a scene of a morning cold and damp quietude, the sad task of collecting the dead and the wounded.

Another painting related to the subject that I have contemplated quite often and reproduced in a very large scale is this --->

An image of a bombed city, a painting within a painting, great and powerful scene.

Jazz 2014

Yes, I worked again hard to supply Jazz Festival with clean, colourful signage.
The music is on and I can hear it from my sun-deck.
Well, it is summertime and the living is easy...

June and a summer haze...





By the way, did I already brag about my new "old" aquisition?
Totally Baroque, truly weathered, well seasoned, I am not going to work on it a bit. --->
Well, not just yet, but soon...
Isn't it cool just next to this painting?
Maja has found an ant....
Oh yeah, that orangy sea-pod --- aha, this ceramic by Cynthia O'Brian.

As a graphic designer, digital print-maker and a display maker you may look for knowledge in places like England, the indispensable French Polisher!

Kimchi

Hey, for those of my fans who know me from the art and graphic side,  here is something that I impressed even myself with:
Home-made KIMCHI!
It is less than two days old, fermented in jars on a kitchen counter and it is amazing!
Ingredients:
  • Napa cabbage
  • Daikon radish
  • Carrot
  • Green onions
  • Salt and sugar
  • Ginger and garlic
  • Hot dry peppers
  • Anchovy sauce (opt.)

Otherwise, I am busy like hell at the Studio,
talk later...
