Welcome back!

Welcome back to me and to you! This was my longest unscheduled blog break yet! But I needed it - somehow I was overwhelmed and under-inspired by life for a a few weeks. I wasn't painting or doing much of anything creative. I went back to basics for a while, which for me are reading, cooking, and knitting.
Last weekend though we went to Atlanta for the Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera exhibit at the High Museum. It was phenomenal and left me feeling renewed and inspired.
Daniel found us a great hotel within walking distance to the museum and the wonderful little restaurants in the area.
It was a quick trip, but so worth it! Atlanta is starting to grow on us with every time we visit.

On our way home, we stopped at Atlanta Underground, which is a mall that is in the old storefronts of Atlanta, which are now below the new city. It only goes on for two blocks or so, but it was really interesting.
Everything looks like you should be above ground. The mall was nothing to speak of, but the old buildings had some beautiful details.

I am off to take Winslow to the vet for his annual checkup and then back home to hopefully paint a little. With renewed energy I hope to have much to share with you soon!!

In the meantime, I am glad to be back and am looking forward to seeing what you've been up to!



  1. Liebe Silke,

    ich freue mich über eure erfüllten Tage.

    Sonnige Grüße

  2. Looks like you had a great time there! Good job they have not let fall the old buildings into disrepair or pulled them down.

  3. Hi Silke, nice to see you. Looks like it was a nice time. Glad you are feeling better and lucky you that you were able to see the Frida exhibition. Have a great week.

  4. Liebe Silke,

    manchmal ist eine Pause wichtig, bloggen soll ja Spaß machen.

    Prima, dass ihr so erlebnisreiche Tage hattet.

    Viele Frühlingsgrüße


  5. Oh so good to see you again! How is it that you look even more beautiful in glasses??? Your trip looks wonderful. I could use a little trip away myself for some renewal.
