Albert Anker (1831-1910)
"Strickendes Maedchen in Landschaft" 1875
"Girl knitting outside" (ruffly translated by me)
Look at her going! Isn't she cute?
I've got mail! When I picked up yesterday's mail, there was a little package inside. To my total surprise I've got this treat from Helga, a reader of my blog, and also a former teacher of my children. There were two cards and some divine chocolate in the package. She's a great knitter herself, and we connected over our interest in knitting. Thank you, Helga, for this wonderful surprise!
Hundertwasser - 1963
"Blood Garden-Houses with yellow smoke" (not my translation)
You've heard about "Hundertwasser sock yarn " don't you?! This is an art card of his work. Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) was Austrian, and I admire his work. It's so colorful. You should see the houses he designed!
Here's a link to some of his art .
Since Sam can't have any chocolate, he's not very impressed.
