I'm back!

Happy New 2014!

I have had a hectic couple of months since my last post and greatly neglected my blogging. But I will attempt to sum up my first Swiss Christmas in a nutshell: Gluwein, twinkly stars, angels and lights, Adventfenster, outdoor fires, sizzling sausages, snow, SamiClaus and Schmutzli (Santa's dark sidekick who throws naughty kids into his big sack and they are never seen again!)

And now I'm back, especially as my littlest has now started Kindergarten, freeing up a bit of time for blogging and a little creativity. While on this subject, I got a welcome reprieve from being mum recently and grabbed the last Friday of the Munch exhibition at the Kunsthaus in Zurich where I enjoyed almost six hours of drifting dreamily around great works of art and recording my feelings and findings in hugely inferior sketches. God did I enjoy myself! The Kunsthaus houses the most amazing collection of work from so many great artists - my highlights included a self portrait print of Munch, a beautifully tender sketch by Giovanni Giacometti and a magnificent portrait of a woman by Picasso. Wow.


  1. I am so sad I couldn't visit Munch's exhibition at Kunsthalle Zurich. Yours sketches are great: this is the best way to visit an exposition!

    1. Thank you very much for your kind comments. I'm enjoying the chance to get sketching again. Perhaps we may meet up at the next exhibition!
