A PERSONAL VIEW: The meaning of “finer” things in life- pour moi – are to live to the fullest and make a contribution than merely being a consumer.
It translates into taking an active stance in what I believe, instead of following the crowds,
into making things instead buying an instant product at the store. Okay to buy something instant when in a hurry, but on some things I won’t budge.

Oil, Grapes of Eshkol ©St Germain – they’re as big as plums, my friend:)

THE GOOD ( the things I won’t budge on):
First – art that is meaningful. Significance and meaning need no advertising
Two – no cookie cutter style – not in anything
Three – real flowers (that’s a Dutch thing)
THE RANDOM: Don’t care if the containers for the brushes are from recycled stuff, but good brushes are a must for me -it makes a world of difference in the end.
For Travel Tuesday: The red haired brush – laying down – was my own souvenir from Beijing and had the whole store looking up which kind of hair it was:)
and white haired also from China was given to me.
For WARM HEART: After our son had lived for two years in China, he brought a hard cover, 190 pages with illustrations of Chinese watercolor art – past and modern times (the Chinese are genius in this medium). He had to search for this second hand book. That makes it even more of a treasure.
THE FUN: With “good” art things around I feel like a fish in water!
I do compromise – Underwhelmed – with hair cuts, cars, dishes, restaurants (as long as it’s not fast food).

Bougainvilla- REAL flowers, please

I don’t “have to” read any latest book, just because everyone is talking about it.
About the fence above – one of these days I’ll paint a vineyard, like the one behind this fence. Am holding off to find the right view/angle!
