Artists that inspire me: Conni Altmann alias Tante Trulla

I only recently discovered this German artist. Turns out she was in the same Flora Bowley workshop as me! It sure is a small world ... ;-)

I love her colourful paintings and the layered backgrounds.

She inspired me to also start working on wood instead of canvas. Didn't do it yet, because I still have to figure out how to make those wooden canvases, but I can't wait to try it.

 I think this one is my absolute favorite. Those colors ... wow, they make me swoon. So gorgeous!

This is one from her Flora Bowley workshop.

And that's not all! She is one talented lady, she sews all kinds of things, like these wallets:

and her mosaics are awesome:

Her house looks like a kind of fairytale to me, so beautiful and inspiring

Go check out her blog: it's worth a look!

And meanwhile it's past midnight on this side of the world. Oops, have to dive in my bed real soon.

Thank you all for leaving those wonderful comments on my posts. It was a very busy weekend so I didn't get the chance to get to all of you, but tomorrow I'll pay you all a virtual visit ;-)

Hope you're having a wonderful day!
